A Headstrong Hero

I'm experiencing an interesting creative relationship with Brad, the hero of my current wip. In the beginning, I thought I knew him so well, but he's leading me a merry chase!?!

He's made it clear he's not a policeman or sheriff, instead he works for the Department of Natural Resources. It still deals with the enforcement of laws, and since he met the heroine Alicia in a science class during college, it made good sense.

In my mind, Brad started out as a wolf shifter. Well, he doesn't want to be one! He has friends who are, he's a protector of their way of life, but he wants to be 100% human. Okay, as long as someone is shifting I'm good with it.

Here's the kicker. In this m/f story, Brad is insisting his friend Tom has an active role in his relationship with Alicia! Now, you all know I love to write menage, but I just never pictured Brad as a sharing kind of guy. He's not letting it go though, so I'm re-working a few things at the beginning of the story to make it work.

Alicia is giddy with excitement!!!


I just received notification that Hana's Handyman will release on October 31st!!!

Have a great weekend,



  1. I have a hero who has decided to take a different direction than I planned. He's causing me all sorts of issues because I'm on a tight deadline. I'm making notes to go back and insert information. Hope it turns out perfectly for you.

    Yay! Can't wait for Hana's Handyman.

    1. You have a headstrong hero while on a tight deadline? That man needs to cut you some slack!!!

  2. Don't you love when a hero takes charge? Enjoy!
    I can't wait to read "Hanna's Handyman" this one sounds so good.

    2. Oops, had to delete my first reply due to it making no sense!!!!

      I knew Brad was an "in charge" character but I had no idea he was going to "take charge" of writing the story!!!

  3. Totally cool, Tess. I like headstrong heroes. I do agree with Kat, it's very interesting when a character takes charge of his or her own destiny.

    1. The process is a lot of re-writing but I'm truly enjoying letting Brad show me who he wants to be!

  4. Very true...your heroes are marvelous and headstrong as hell. LOL!
