Much Ado About Characters

'Do you like to read romance novels? Wouldn't you like to know more about your favorite authors? Well you came to the right place! Join the writers of Romance Weekly as we go behind the scenes of our books and tell all..... About our writing of course! Every week we'll answer questions and after you've enjoyed the blog on this site we'll direct you to another. So come back often for a thrilling ride! Tell your friends and feel free to ask us questions in the comment box.'
1. Do you have a favorite character from any of your books? My favorite female character is Shayla, from Tessa's Trio. She is outspoken, outrageous, sensual and sexual. She is unashamed to be who she is. She is what we should all be. My favorite male is Peter, from Rekindled Fire. He is strong emotionally, mentally and physically. He stands up for what he believes in and puts his family first. (I won't even mention the fact that he is adorable and totally lickable.)

2. If you were him/her what would you have done differently in their situation? Shayla is a minor character in the book, but her story is underway. I'm not sure yet how she will react to her situation, except that she will go hard after what she wants. Peter takes too long to fight for himself. I would like to think that I would stand up for myself sooner than he does.

3. Do you believe in the traditional HEA or do you think sometimes characters don’t need (or maybe deserve) them? EVERYONE deserves a happily ever after ... well except total creeps and villains. I want my characters to find happy for now, or at least content. But my preference is definitely for HAPPILY EVER AFTER. Life is too short, and too uncertain to settle for less.

That is my brief take on this weeks questions.
