What makes a great hero?
A hero can be a man or a woman, but I suppose if we are talking about a man, there are certain qualities that give him heroic luster. He should be smart enough to know his own way in life and his own heart, kind enough to treat people well (even if they don’t extend the same courtesy to him) and rise up against injustice and evil, strong enough to face adversities without losing who he is or being deterred from loving who he wants to love, and innocent enough to believe in true love and happy ever after. Sexiness comes from within, a glow of self-confidence, so a six-pack is not a requirement J
Do you have anything in common with your characters?
Not really. They do their own thing. One or two personality traits we might share, but beyond that… I do tend to over-analyze things sometimes, so Jordan Waters from Sounds of Love did have that in common with me. But other than that, nope.
What’s the strangest (bravest, funniest etc) thing you’ve ever done?
Other than becoming an erotic romance author? J Just kidding. Well, I don’t know about strange, but one funny thing happened to me on my very first trip to a foreign climate, Mallorca of all places. I was just a kid back then, and I was going to the hotel pool first thing in the morning. I swam all day, my sister and other patrons joined me, and I had a great morning. Then it was time for lunch, and everybody got out of the pool. My sister pointed at the pool as the waters calmed and said, “Hey, look, someone’s glasses are on the bottom!”. I slapped my face with my hand hard and yelled, “Shit, they’re mine!”. I’m not sure if I cursed, but something to that effect. So, listening to the chortles of my family and other hotel guests, I dived for my glasses (intact, thank goodness), and spent the rest of the day blushing so badly that people thought I’d gotten severe sunburn.
