When I started writing, someone told me to give my characters unusual/curious/interesting professions or hobbies, especially my female characters.
Over the years, I developed my characters in many different ways, so I went back to see what I've done with them--and what they haven't tackled yet. So, here are the biographies of some characters:
- Star is a scuba diver who investigates insurance claims. Hauk is a boat captain looking for underwater treasures.
- Riley is a librarian hoping to become a scriptwriter. Blythe is an actor whose real life is stranger and more dangerous than his fictional life.
- Rowan is a geologist turned B&B owner. Avery is a tormented RCMP looking for comfort in a bottle who likes to reconstruct animal skeletons. Bjorn is an Icelandic tour guide with a meddling grandmother.
- Amelia is an Army Colonel. Hope is a teenage deaf biathlete. Richmond is a sheriff haunted by his past.
- Julia is an accountant. Thierry is a teenage goaltender struggling with the code of silence. Luke is an explosive expert.
- Maxime is a university swimmer with a target on her back. Ross is an undercover officer.
- Liliane is a painter in charge of an election office. Jasper is a detective with a secret love interest.
- Becca is a journalist who snuck into a decommissioned military base and ended in the past. Ash is in charge of repairing and restocking warships.
- Violette is a jill-of-all-trade who gets trapped remodelling an escape room. Joe is a police officer who owns escape rooms.
- Lana is a retired military nurse and potato farmer. Eli is a retired submariner raising his five-year old granddaughter.
I'll admit I'm partial to men & women in uniforms, but at the same time, I write mystery/murder/romance. Someone needs to arrest the perpetrator, but it's not always who it should be LOL
