Meet The Characters

Hi Everybody!

I thought this would be a perfect time to introduce some of our favorite characters that we've created (whether you finished the manuscript or not) might we meet some of your favorite characters? (you don't even have to say what story they're from).

Here's some of mine from various mss'es that I've either finished or still need to finish:

Bast Cantrell -- loyal friend, humorous, supportive and madly in love with his wife (Alexia). A man, but can change into a jackal, he makes a good hunting partner to predators who live near him.

The Fairies Of The Seasons--These little creatures (well not always little) are good guides when you're on a quest or in need of matchmaking purposes. They also are a bit on the mischevious side.

Noelle "NJ" Manchester--Fiesty, independent and not given to "fairy tales". She's loved by her brothers and male friends--thought of as "one of the guys", but also has a feminine side.

Pierre Mercier--Probably the smoothest most debonair male I've ever created. Nice guy, business man, and also has a playful side.

So, what are some of yours? Might we meet them?

What about books that are out there (not characters you created)....

Here's a few of mine:

Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, Mr. Darcy (need I say more?) just rocks in the end!

Kerrelyn Sparks' Gregori from her Love At Stake series. He's hailirious, fun, sure of himself and just an all around funny guy.

Ciara Gold's Del Geod from Celestial Dragon. Nice balance of serious, humor, and loyalty.

Lurlene MacDaniel's Jesse Rose from A Rose For Melinda, kind, sensitive, loyal, and a good guy.

So what are some of your favorite characters from books you've read? (include author's name, and book title in case someone wants to meet that character!)

Please let us meet your characters and the ones that you've liked from other authors' works!

And have a Wined And Dined Wednesday!

Favorites:

Mr. Darcy all day!; Jane Austen's Emma; Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen (she is just to cool and is an excellent baker); Daphne Du Maurier's Mrs. de Winter (sweet, naive and unassuming); Erle Stanley Gardner's Della Street (smart, fun and always loyal to Perry Mason)

I'm glad to see you like and know your characters so well. I'll have to get back to you on some of mine. Thank you for sharing.

I agree with you about Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swenson--she's cool).

Looking forward to meeting your characters!

Some of my favorites have been Alice Cullen in "Twilight", (and of course Edward Cullen). I love Ron Weasley in "Harry Potter"...Clover in "Leven Thumps", and Scarlet in "Gone With the Wind". Just to name a few...

J.J.--

Do we get to meet the favorite characters YOU created? I understand if you choose not to introduce us, but it would be fun to know them!

I agree with you on the Alice Cullen one. She's one awesome vamp.

I'll tell you about a couple of them...

Kimmie Kendell- Cheerleader, self absorbed teen who has her head stuck in fashion magazines when she should be doing something...ANYTHING!

Helga Von Hauser- Foreign exchange student whom every boy has fantasies of, until they meet her...(I don't want to give too much away on that one)

There's two for you...
