How does your hero dress?
You'll often find Chayton in a pair of ripped up jeans and a button-down shirt, or a raunchy t-shirt
What are the qualities of his voice? (pitch, quality, volume)
Deep; has been labeled as a raspy roar or "soft and sweet with a crust of thorns"
What does he have a knack for doing?
Chayton can make a mean drink, but he loves to be outside, on the slopes, and he makes everyone feel welcome (well, everyone except Naomi).
What is your character's family like?
Chayton's brother, Garret, is a former special agent and recently engaged. His father and mother—the one he always knew as his mom—are dead. Most of his family consists of friends and members of the community.
Does this character see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Chayton sees things in black-and-white. He has been described as an honest and charming rebel. He may seem shallow, but he's very deep inside.
If someone from your character's past showed up, who would he most want it to be, and why? OR who would he most NOT want it to be, and why?
He would not want it to be his birth mother, because she gave him up when he was eighteen months and he has no use for her.
What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?
The fear of abandonment.
What past event causes your character the most fear?
Being abandoned.
What is your hero's biggest personal flaw?
His hostility toward Naomi. One of the most calm and relaxed people yet shocks others when he flares up for reasons beyond comprehension. He's not too opinionated but hates his opinion to be challenged.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Well hell, probably because I'm irresistible.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
Shrugs. It's all under the bridge now.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
Yeah. My sister was a surprise to us both.
When your writer is writing about you, what do you think makes your writer the most happy? What makes your writer the most sad?
I know she gets sad when I go silent.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
Because she gets to write about characters like me.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your writer?
Uh, thanks for telling my story. And thanks for helping me not to get my ass killed when I made some stupid decisions.

Author Bio

Angela Smith
During her senior year in high school, Angela Smith was dubbed most likely to write a novel, and that has been her dream ever since her mother read Brer Rabbit to her and her sister so often that they were able to recite it back to each other before actually learning to read. She's always enjoyed stories about the adventure of love, and getting involved in the legal field developed her love of suspense. A certified paralegal, work gives her perfect fodder for her romantic suspense stories. When not caring for her small farm or spending time with her husband of two decades, she enjoys creating, reading, and dreaming of the places she'll visit one day.

  1. Thanks for featuring Chayton and me on your blog today!

    1. You're so welcome. I loved the name Chayton. That's so different.

  2. Thank you! I love the name, too. It is actually a name derived from the Sioux, and since he is part Sioux I thought it was perfect.
