When planning my novels I live on ‘Cloud Nine’ and give a lot of thought to my characters. (Of course, although, a lot of hard work lies ahead this part is nothing but fun.)
My new hero, Justin, is intrusive. He won't go away. He is so demanding that when thinking of him I nearly burned the spaghetti sauce.
Justin’s partner to be is taking shape in my mind - both her characteristics and physical appearance.
Oh dear, amongst other things, Justin wants me to go on a shopping spree with him to make sure I know what he likes and dislikes. He's so bossy he will soon be writing letters to me to tell me all about him, where he was born, who his parents are etc. I'm sure it will be interesting But please, pretty please, Justin don't wake me up in the middle of the night again to ask my advice, I need my sleep.
Justin, the more I think about you, the more I realise I've given you the wrong name so it's goodbye Justin and hello Jocelyn. And now I can visualise you. A mop of golden curls, arched eyebrows and deep blue eyes with at twinkle in them. A tall, good looking, fun loving young man who is brave and does have a serious side to him,
All the best,
Author of Tangled Hearts set in the reign of Queen Anne.
