Who is the significant other in your character's life?
Tell us about this character, please.
Peyton travelled from Miami to East Millburg (which is based on Detroit) to negotiate a business deal with a woman who was blocking a multimillion dollar project. The evening before the meeting he drops into a dive strip club for a drink and some entertainment. He is captivated by a red headed pole dancer. By chance he meets her in a diner later that night. They have a hook up at a local inn. Next day he meets the woman and it turns out to be the pole dancer. She runs a small ballet school for underprivileged children. She’d been a professional ballerina, but an accident and then an unsuccessful surgery ended her career.
Fuchsia Quinn is struggling with the loss of her dream job and forced career change and the challenges and frustrations of teaching in a severely depressed community. She’s furious with Peyton for trying to close her school just to build a mall. But she’s also in love with the handsome and charming man.
How does your hero dress?
Tailor man suits – Hugh Boss, Armani
Does he scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
With a penthouse condo on the waterfront in Miami and a 3-storey log cabin to retreat to on weekends in Alaska and a private jet to fly from coast to coast- I’d say he lives extravagantly.
What is your character's viewpoint on wealth?
He loves wealth. His father ran out on the family and his mother struggled to raise two children. His father was killed in a bar brawl and left him a fortune which he then tripled in dollar worth.
What is your character's family like?
Peyton’s mother is an alcoholic. The struggles of her younger life were too much and she took comfort in a bottle. Peyton and his sister have tried to get her sober, but the lure of the whiskey is too much. Peyton’s younger sister, Lanna, is a proud woman who loves her older brother dearly. Peyton assumed the male father figure role after his father disappeared. When the pressure got too intense he took to drinking and started to run with a gang, but sobered up when Lanna confronted him.
Is he close to family?
Very. His protective of his little sister and her daughter and has built a lovely home for his mother in Miami and keeps her well looked after.
Does he have children?
Not at the beginning of the book. He has a young niece he calls Princess whom he adores. He adores her enough to sit through her ballet recital.
How do others perceive your character based upon looks, and is this assumption accurate?
A successful rich billionaire who has a lucky streak a mile wide. Not completely true. He got a headstart, but he worked hard to grow that beginning into a sizeable fortune.
Does your character care about what others assume about him?
No. He is his own man. The world can follow him.
What do you think your biggest flaw is?
My Temper. It has gotten the better of me on several occasions and gets me into trouble quite a lot.
When there is a setback, what doubt or flaw surfaces?
My arrogance. When Fuchsia kept tossing up road blocks stopping the construction of my latest project, my pride jumped forward demanding “Who is this woman? And why does she think she can stop me? Me!”
What can I say – I’m human
How do you handle challenges?
I rub my hands together and settle down to work it out. I have a basic belief anything can be solve I f you throw enough money at it.
About Your Writer
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Because I was pounding on the inside of her head demanding that my story be written.
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
The scene where I was an absolute bastard to Fuchsia. It showed my angry, petty side and I’d rather the world just thought of me as a handsome, charming demigod.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about, and why?
My sister Lanna. She had an interesting life being my little sister, but if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be the man I am today. She made me sober up and grow up. I owe her a lot.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I don’t know that she loves to write. While I was bouncing around in her head there were a lot of other characters in there – several people, some not human and even a dragon. I think she writes to get us out of her head so she can sleep at night.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your writer?
Thank you for writing Fuchsia into my life. I was just a workaholic. The desire to make more money was my driving force. Fuchsia opened my eyes and my heart.
