Have you noticed I haven’t had a guest author in a little while? Well, with the holidays, people are all crazy busy. So, through the end of the year, I’m just answering questions. This week’s question I figured I’d answer on Friday since I spent Sunday at the Bills game!
So, Aliana wants to know…
Of all the characters you’ve created, which is your favorite and why?
This question has taken me a long time to answer. I’m still not totally sure, but I have an idea. It’s as hard picking a favorite character as a favorite kid… well, not as hard, but it’s tough.
I’m going to cheat a little with this question and pick more than one, but let me explain.
My favorite couple is definitely Carrie and Drew from Husky & Hot. I loved Carrie’s sassiness and her confidence, but also her soft side. She wanted to be a mom so badly and I loved that she wasn’t a career woman. She still wanted to make a difference.
And Drew… Well, how can you not love Drew. From his dirty mouth to his broken heart to the way he loves… He’s definitely a fantasy guy!
When you put the two of them together, it was fireworks from the very beginning. I loved that.
I’m always plotting new books. I’m going to cheat because there are two characters coming in my new series, Raise A Glass, that I’m really excited about. They’re going to be like Drew and Carrie in a lot of ways – a lot of heat, a lot of spunk, and some brokenness that’ll make you love them even more.
So since, Aliana asked me, I have to know… Which of my characters are your favorite?
Thanks so much, Aliana, for your question! If you have a question, send me an email (mary (at) maryethompson (dot) com) with Q&A in the subject, or post it in the comments below, and I’ll answer your question right here on the blog!
