Secondary Characters! We can love them or hate them, huh? I love these “back-up” characters when they do what I want them to and don’t try to take over the book. Sometimes while writing, the character’s personality is so bright and engaging, it’s really hard to pull back the character back out of the spotlight.
And that is exactly what happened with Allison from Confessions.
While writing Chelsea’s story, her sister, Allison, almost stole the show. Let me tell you… Allison is spunky. She is a loud mouth! She doesn’t do well with taking no for an answer. She goes for what she wants and believes in.
So what did I do?
I yanked her by the hair out of Chelsea’s spotlight in Confessions and dropped her right into the heroine spot in Midnight Secrets. She quickly became one of my favorite characters to write and she’ll have many appearances in The Desert Secret Series books.
Can you think of a secondary character you’d like to know better? From a book or a TV show?
When Chelsea Montgomery vanished eleven years ago, her hometown thought she’d been abducted. In truth, she’d given up the daughter she’d secretly had with Jordan Case.
Now he confronts her to help find the child. With a little girl’s fate hanging in the balance, will the uneasy partnership — stained by the past — transform into something else?
