Introducing: Kate

Okay, so Kate is obviously not at the top of my list of characters, but she is my main character, so… Anyway, without further ado, I am excited to introduce to you Kate:

Full Name: Katherine Elizabeth Blythe

Nickname: Kate, Eric calls her Katie

Age: 17 in the prologue, 19 in the first half, 33 in the second half

Hair: Long, Wavy, Dark Brown

Eyes: Dark Blue/Grey

Height: 5′ 4″

Marital Status: She is married to Eric Charles Coulson-Blythe

Children: She has 3 children – Ellery Hope, Margaret Elizabeth, and Charles Matthew Blythe. She also has one foster son – Peter James Carson (Wellington).

Clothing: There are three different type of clothing that she wears throughout the entire book.

1. Royal – Simple Renaissance style dresses. Most are Dark Navy Blue though she wears some Dark Grey, Some Dark Purple, and some Dark Brown as well. All of her dresses have gold stitching.

2. She wears simple peasant style dress that are Dark Blue, Dark Grey, or Dark Brown.

3. For a good portion of her appearances in the book, especially in the second half or when traveling, Kate wears a Tunic and Leather Leggings, chain mail optional for battles. Leggings are usually Dark Brown or Black. Tunics are Dark Blue, Dark Grey, or Dark Brown with a little gold at the shoulders and neck.

Weapons: Kate can use all weapons well, but she prefers using a Bow or a Sword.

Personality: She is Stubborn and Determined, but she is also Caring and Sweet. She loves her family above all else and will do anything to protect them. She is a wonderful leader and can get most people to follow her just by her calm leadership skills. She has an incredible sense of duty, and if she believes something to be her duty, she will do everything in her power to complete that duty. She is also very mischievous, especially when it comes to bringing two people together.

Status: She is the Heir to the High Throne

Name Meaning: Pure

And that is Kate, the main character for the first half of the book, as well as a very central character elsewhere in the book. Next, you’ll meet Kate’s husband Eric and then soon after that, her daughter Ellery, the main character in the second half of the book.

Until next time,

Introducing: Creallin

I’ve had many people ask me about my newest writing project. Unfortunately, this writing project has decided to make it easy to summarize in under 160 characters, or 1,180 characters for that matter (this is the limit of characters I could use to text the summary to someone). I decided, therefore, that it was in my best interest to create a place where I could easily begin to advertise for a project that is still in the planning stages. As a matter of fact, there isn’t even a title yet, I haven’t found anything that fits! So, without further ado, let me introduce you to: Creallin.

Creallin is a fictional continent surrounded on all sides by water, which may or may not actually make it an island, I don’t know for sure. Most of the continent is protected by 70′ cliffs that border the sea, protecting the people on the continent from attack.  The continent is made up of four kingdoms. In the North of the continent is the kingdom of Weldon which is very mountainous. In the South-East is the Kingdom of Dargath, which is primarily a large desert, except near the sea. In the South-West is the kingdom of Rydell which is composed primarily of a large enchanted forest (I’m calling this forest “The Dark Forest” until I can find a better name for it). In the center of the continent, bordered by the other three kingdoms, is The High Court, the rulers in this court rule over the entire continent. The High Court may be in control of the rest of the continent, but the rulers of Weldon, Dargath, and Rydell are given free rein to rule their separate kingdoms as they see fit, as long as they obey the rules and laws set by The High Court.

My book will take place over a period of 17 years. It will begin right after the birth of a child and it will end with a declaration from that child 17 years later. Over the next few weeks, I will begin to introduce you to my characters, starting with the mother of the aforementioned child, she is my main character for the first half of the book. There are many characters in this book, and even I have trouble keeping them straight. So in order to help you keep the characters straight, before I introduce the characters to you, I will list the characters here in family groups.
