I would like to welcome back romance author, Catherine Bybee, who is joining us with the second book in her Not Quite series, Not Quite Mine!
Character Profile on Katie Morrison
Guest Post Catherine Bybee
Thank you so much for having me on your blog today. I’m taking requests for blog tour topics from my Facebook friends.
This blog question comes from Lisa. She is wanting a character profile.
Let’s go with Katie today. As some of you remember from Not Quite Dating, Katie is Jack’s sister. Developing her character was made easier by introducing her in the first book.
I try and begin my character profiles by physical appearance and their childhood. Do they have parents, how is their relationships with them? Do they have siblings? Do they have money? A job?
Katie is my own personal Paris Hilton. She’s from a wealthy family, she’s beautiful and confident, and some might see her as spoiled and conceited. But her childhood wasn’t perfect. She had a nonexistent mother and an overworking father. She and her brother are close, and at this time in her life she’s decided it’s past time for her to do something with her days other than play.
Every romance has to have a character profile of past relationships and how they affect the hero or heroine. Katie, as you’ll see from page one, had a past relationship with the hero of Not Quite Mine…and a devastating breakup.
So let’s recap Katie:
Has superficial friends (except Jessie and Monica)
Close with her brother
Uses her sexuality like a warrior uses a sword
Wears stilettos and mini-skirts for the purpose of gaining attention
Never leaves home without layers of polish and perfect hair…until someone changes that
Respects and loves her father
Could care less, or so she thinks, about her mother
Secretly wants a family of her own
Never stopped loving Dean
So, dear reader…that is Katie.
