Meet My Character Book Blog
Meet My Character Book Blog
This is quite an unexpected journey. I am very lucky to have found a great group of bloggers that really enjoys helping other authors. Carol Malone found me and I'm so glad she did .
It's always a lot of fun talking about our characters and if any of you authors that are reading this would like to join us please let me know.
Meet Carol Malone
Carol’s bio: Carol Malone has found a magical key for successfully combining her three passions – romance, sports, and writing in her highly rated book, “Fight Card Romance: Ladies Night.” http://amzn.to/1kI4dVo
With “Ladies Night,” she became the first woman to punch her way into the suspenseful, male-dominated genre of pulp boxing with a tender love story. Since then she has written numerous stories to entice readers to scramble into a front row seat for a power-packed thrill-ride of romance and sports action.
Look for her novella “Hot Corner Magic” to be published in a pulp sports anthology. If not hammering out new tales, Carol is reading, watching sports or the Food Network on TV, or hanging with her sci-fi author husband on the Coast of California. Come visit her website and chat with her about sports and amour.
Meet Virginia Templeton
What is the name of your character?
VirginiaTempleton is a fictional character but the more I write about her the more real she becomes. I introduced her in a screenplay that hasn't been produced yet but she was always one of my favorite characters.Virginia loves men, sex, power and shoes! She has a heart but rarely lets anyone see that side of her. She had to fight for everything so she rarely let her guard down until the Templeton Corporation was her responsibility.
Where is the story set?
The story is set in Chicago and later on in this series she will be in different cities and countries. Her husband Slater is a well-known Chicago born and bred successful businessman and she is very ambitious woman from a small town. Together they like to think they are a very significant part of Chicago’s social scene and when they are in the public eye people watch them. Virginia is the power behind her man but he doesn't view it that way. Their marriage has had many ups and downs and they each keep their secrets private and that's what makes them so very interesting and their stories leave their readers wanting more!
What should we know about Virginia?
Virginia is a very interesting highly intelligent woman but most see her as a glamorous sexy woman who loves shoes and a good time. Virginia does enjoy the fact that she is not known for her brains because she’s quite a bit smarter than those that do not see her as the powerhouse she is .
What is the main conflict in the story?
When Virginia realizes the Templeton Corporation is in financial trouble she uses everything including her money trying to uncover the truth as to why her husband’s company, a financially sound corporation, could be losing money so quickly. She knew there were secrets but what she didn’t know was how deeply rooted this investigation would become.
What is the personal goal for Virginia Templeton?
Virginia’s goal was to come to terms with her husband’s reasons for the problems he left his company with. She had no idea why such a smart businessman would let this happen or why. And why did he leave her with absolutely no information unless he was hoping she could do what he could not, that being bring his company back on top!
