Meet My Character
Thanks to Matthias Williamson for inviting me to introduce one of my characters.
Last week was Matthias’s turn and you can read his post about Drum here: http://www.bastardgenres.net
I decided on introducing Jeff. He’s one of the main protagonists in my novella ‘Never Wrong’
This are the questions about him:
1.) What is the name of your character?
2.) Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
3.) When and where is the story set?
The story is set in Chicago, Illinois, in 2014
4.) What should we know about him/her?
Jeff is a man in his forties who just recently stopped hiding how he feels. He spent a lot of time with doing what other people thought was right.
Jeff has very mixed feelings about a lot of things, and just because he accepts something doesn’t mean he is comfortable with it. He has to learn that, though.
5.) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
Jeff spent 42 years doing what he thought was right. As he realized his mistakes, he changed a lot of things, but he is definitively not ready to meet someone new.
6.) What is the personal goal of the character?
To make a new life and move on. Jeff wants to leave his past behind him.
7.) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?
The story is called Never Wrong. I’ll post the blurb as soon as I’ve got a release date.
8.) When can we expect the book to be published or when was it published?
The book will be released soon, coming from MLR Press.
I hope you’ll love Jeff and Dean (the other protagonist) as much as I do and enjoy their story once it’s available.
The next author introducing one of her characters is JT Hall:
J.T. Hall has a bachelor degree in Creative Writing and a Master in Education. She has long been active in the LGBT community and does charity work including AIDS education and suicide prevention. She currently works as a technical writer and lives with her partner and teenaged daughter in sunny Arizona.
