D. K. Gaston Hero From XIII

What's his name?

Avery Hudson

Why did you pick that name?

Avery comes from actor Avery Brooks (Deep Space 9) and Hudson comes from the Bruce Willis movie Hudson Hawk Give us a brief description of how he looks. Hudson is a bounty hunter pursuing a man who sold his soul to the devil for 13 years of youth, fame and fortune.

Is there anything unusual about his appearance?

Nothing unusual. He's 6 feet, muscular build, bronze skin and wears a short cropped hairdo like a soldier.

Who does he love? Why?

He's falling in love with small town sheriff Mary Jamison. There was an instant chemistry between them.

Does this person love him?

No, her heart belongs to the memory of her late husband. She has no room for another.

Tell us about his family. Are they important to him?

His mother died when he was young. His father, a soldier, was hard on him. They have a strained relationship. Avery never speaks of him.

Where is he from?

Avery is a military brat. He doesn't know his actual birthplace.

Does his hometown affect his behavior, thoughts and attitude?

The military was an important part of him. He even drives a Hummer to transport his prisoners. What does he want out of life? To make enough money to retire before 40 and to move to some tropical island surrounded by beautiful island girls.

What's his biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.)

Not able to bear seeing his mother suffering anymore in the hospital, Avery turned off her life-support machine. He blanked the entire incident from his memory.

Did you write more than one story about him?

I've begun the sequel, Chasing the Dark, and have an premise for the third novel.

How would he describe you?
