Please provide a physical description of the character.
Tall, fit, with tousled black hair. His eyes are as green and limpid as the water in a woodland brook. A tanned, handsome face, with a straight nose and strong jaw.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Aaron is a time-travelling warlock who has just come back from the 17th century. He has come to Wales to find out if there are still sea witches left, and if their old magic still works.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
He meets the love of his life, Sapphire, in the story. Sapphire is the last in a long line of sea witches… but she’s only an apprentice sorceress, and she’s having trouble with her spells.
How does your hero dress?
Aaron moves between the 17th and the 21st century. When in the 17th century, he dresses like a gentleman of the time: black doublet and breeches, riding boots, and in winter, a cloak. In the 21st century he wears clothes suitable for a teacher, as that’s his day job: smart-casual shirts and trousers, or jeans and T-shirts when not working. Like all warlocks, he favours black.
How educated is this character? Is he book smart, self-taught, widely-experienced?
Aaron teaches English literature. He is very well read and very knowledgeable about Shakespeare – which isn’t surprising, as he knows the man and drinks with him regularly.
What special skills does your character rely on?
His magical skills, which include light healing, finding lost objects, and time travel. His specialty however is seeing what is in men’s – and women’s – hearts. He can see into your very soul.
What is your character’s family like?
Aaron is the son of a medieval witch, Alys Wolfsbane, also known as Alys the Dark, who ran away from her abusive husband and escaped into the 21st century. Unfortunately she had to leave her baby son behind – Auric, Aaron’s elder brother. In the 21st century, Alys met Aaron’s father, and gave birth to Aaron. They were happy for a while, until one day she disappeared. She reappeared the following evening. She looked ten years older, and she had a little boy with her – Ariel, Aaron’s younger brother. It turned out that she had been abducted by the Faeries, and spent years in Faerieland. Ariel is half-Fae. So Aaron has a rather unusual family!
If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would he most want it to be, and why? OR who would he most NOT want it to be, and why?
He would like to see his mother again. After her mysterious disappearance and return, she and Aaron’s father tried to rekindle their relationship, but Aaron’s father couldn’t get over the fact that she was 10 years older and had had a son by another man. Eventually she went away for good, taking Aaron’s brother, Ariel, with her. Ariel returned years later, but she didn’t. Ariel told Aaron that she had gone back to Faerieland, for good. Aaron still loves his mum, but is angry with her for abandoning him. They have unresolved issues!
What is your hero’s biggest hopes and dreams?
To settle down, with someone who will love him as he is, and never leave him.
About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.
To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
I’m a time-travelling warlock, and I have an unusual family background, so I guess I have an interesting story to tell.
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I think she loves to spend time with us, away from her work and family duties. We help her to relax and forget her worries.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
I think she should write books about my brothers, Auric and Ariel. They’re very interesting guys. Auric is a medieval monk who uses his magical skills to fight demons. Ariel, with his Fae blood, is the most powerful warlock in England, and all the women fall under his spell.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Don’t give up. Keep writing.

Alice Renaud Social Media
Alice was born and brought up in Brittany, Western France, her father was French and her mother British (from Wales). She moved to London, UK, in 1997, where she now lives with her husband and son. She works full time as a compliance specialist in a pharmaceutical company. She has been writing in her free time since she was 14. She got quite a few short stories published in UK magazines, before moving to longer fiction. She wrote three contemporary romance books, but didn’t find a publisher for them. She then realized that mermen, sea witches, and time travelling warlocks were a lot more fun than sheikhs and billionaires! Her first two paranormal romances did not find a publisher either, then she wrote A Merman’s Choice, which was published in January this year by Black Velvet Seductions. It is the first book in the Sea of Love series, a fantasy romance trilogy inspired by the landscapes and legends of Brittany and Wales. The second book in the series, Music for a Merman, will be out later this year. She loves reading and writing stories, and sharing them with anyone who’s interested!
