One Smooth Stone by Marcia Lee Laycock
Okay -- its time to tell us about that hunky hero in your book.
What's his name? He goes by Alex Donnelly but discovers he was born with another name
Why did you pick that name? I've always liked the name Alex. Donnelly seemed to fit him.
Give us a brief description of how he looks. He's average height, black hair and grey eyes. He tends to slouch a lot.
Is there anything unusual about his appearance? He has a white scar extending from the bottom tip of his left ear to his shoulder.
Who does he love? he slowly falls in love with a paralegal he meets when he returns to the city.
Why? He sees something in her he has been searching for all his life - peace.
Does this person love him? Yes, though she resists it at first
Tell us about his family. Are they important to him? Extremely, but he has never known them. He was raised in foster homes.
Where is he from? Born in Seattle, WA, but has lived most of his life in Vancouver Canada
Does his hometown affect his behavior, thoughts and attitude? No. He left it when a baby.
What does he want out of life? Peace and a sense of belonging.
What's his biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.) Something happened in one of the foster homes he lived in. He feels a lot of shame because of it.
Did you write more than one story about him? I'm about to start book 2.
How would he describe you?
Hmm - interesting question. He'd probably describe me as someone who will someday make a good grandmother.
Is there anything else about your hero that we need to know? Feel free to share.
He has a lot of internal conflict that keeps running into the external circumstances in his life. He thinks he has a way out, but finds he has just run right back to where he started.
Please provide your website link.
