Well, somehow it’s Wednesday already, and since I don’t have another chapter of The Fallen ready to post, I’ve decided to post a character profile such as those Heidi’s been posting on her fantastic blog, Inside the Mind of a Fantasy Writer. (I’m also borrowing her format because I like it.)
But first, a little
shameless self-promotion reminder to “Like” my blog’s Facebook page by clicking on the link in the menu on the left. (You may have to scroll down a tad, but it’s there!) And thanks to those of you who have!
Now, let’s meet:
From: Star Eyes (paranormal romance, YA)
Character Type: Protagonist
Physical Description: Silver-blonde hair and blue eyes
Species: Alien from the planet Mondra
“Occupation”: High school student
Relationship Status: In a relationship…but it’s complicated
Love interest(s): Dave, a human teenager, is her true love, but she can’t deny her attraction to Hazri, another Mondrian.
Goals: To feel like a “normal teenager”; to be a good friend and girlfriend; to figure out what the Mondrians want with Earth
Obstacles: Since her people are telepathic, it’s almost impossible for her to keep anything from Hazri.
Strengths: Telepathic and telekinetic; loyal; open-minded
Flaws: Forgive the cliché, but she “cares too much” -but seriously, she cares deeply about her friends and family, so can be easily devastated. But she also does have a jealous streak.
Enjoys: Astronomy, journalism, hanging out with her friends
“You know what?” Dave said after the server had already left. “I just realized that I don’t have any silverware.” He tried to flag down the host.
“Yes, you do,” Celeste said, nodding toward his plate.
“I swear that wasn’t there…oh well.” He placed the napkin on his lap and drizzled some dressing over his salad. Celeste glanced around, hoping that no one had seen the bundle of utensils wrapped carefully in a dark red napkin rise off of the empty table next to them, fly through the air and land quietly beside Dave’s plate.
This was actually really enjoyable to write -I sort of abandoned the world in this book, so it was fun to revisit! Hope you liked this glimpse into Celeste’s character, too!
