Favorite Characters

When I'm writing, I'm in another world. I'm looking through the eyes of my characters and imagining what they would do and say. Sometimes, I lose myself in a character. It doesn't seem possible, but trust me, it happens.

Jay in my Sexy & Damned series is one of my characters I adore. The wannabe rock star is very passionate. He knows what he wants, which is my protagonist. He'll do anything and everything to have her. I love his drive, his desire. No matter how many times my protagonist tries to deny him, he returns. Go Jay!

In my Playful Demons series, my favorite characters are Anthony and Dominick. They are two very naughty demons. I can't explain it, but looking through their eyes is so much fun. Both just want to play and fuck women. They're kinky, lustful, vulgar, and determined to fuck. Anything is possible with them. After all, they're demons with hot sex on their brain every minute of the day. Oh, the fun I have when I'm in their shoes. LOL.

My Sisters of Lonewood series is a contemporary one and calmer compared to the other series I've written. Sisters of Lonewood is about seven sisters and each one of them finding love or realizing who the love of their life is. I started with a general description of each sister. I get to really know my character when I sit down to write her story. Some of the women are sweet. Others are more kinky and playful. Although they are blood related, they each have a unique personality and love interest. I've enjoyed stepping in the shoes of each one (all 7 stories are set for publication in the next few months). If I had to select a favorite of the seven, I'd probably select Alison and Lisa's stories. Okay, Heather's too.

Destined for Love is a stand alone ménage I wrote a year ago. I saw a Verizon commercial a few years back with a genie and thought it would be a good idea to write a story with a genie. Well, as time passed, I thought about it more and wanted to make my genie story unique. So, I wrote the story with two hot genies. A woman is down on her luck and she happens to finds a bottle that looks a bit like a beer bottle but with strange marks. You can somewhat figure out the rest, but my story is not a typical genie story. Oh no!

In every story I write, a small piece of me is in each character. This helps me connect with my characters. For example, I'm not a stripper but I am a survivor like my Sexy & Damned stripper, Celee. She is a fighter to the end and she has a good heart. Even thought she's damned, she's trying to make amends and save her soul. She's one of my favorite characters too.

If you want a kick ass type of character, check out Sexy & Damned series. If you want some naughty and fun demons in a fun and playful Hell, check out Playful Demons series. If you want a sweet ménage, go for Destined for Love. And if you want a variety, then look at the Sisters of Lonewood series.

What's next? Well, you'll have to wait and see. But trust me, I'm always looking to write something different. I'm working on a two projects now that are just that. Variety is good, right?
