Recently, I was asked a question by Anna on Goodreads. She wanted to know who, of all my characters, is my favorite and why. And Anna already knew--she already knew that was like asking me to choose my favorite child! Despite that, however, I love the question, and I'm going to do my best at answering it! So, Anna, here it goes:
Butterfly Weeds and My Butterfly
Will~He's my first. (And as my mother would attest to, that holds some weight. ...It must, right?! ). Will's a firefighter, who has a beautiful voice. Of course, I love that about him! And he knows what he wants, and he possesses this UNWAVERING love. But he's not perfect, and I love that about him, too.
Julia~She's independent and so strong-willed, but she also knows when to follow her heart. And I like her courage.
Jeff~Will's best friend. I think we all know or knew a "Jeff" at some time. I like him because he's awkward and because he's a great friend.
For All You Have Left
By Way of Accident
When Cicadas Cry
A Bird on a Windowsill
Berlin~He's a small-town boy, who rides a motorcycle, fixes up an old Chevelle and isn't afraid to live. But ... he isn't afraid to love either. AND Berlin is my husband's favorite character!
Iva~She follows her passion and reminds me what it's like to be thirteen.
Iva's mom~I think she always rooted for Iva and Berlin, even if she never came out and said it.
So, who's my favorite?!
I HAVE NO IDEA!
Maybe you're a better judge!
