Love in the Key of C by Daryl Devore

Genre Contemporary Christmas Short

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Collapsing in front the biggest department store in the city on one of the busiest days of the holiday season was not how Giselle imagined her day. Cold and hungry, she trudged through her daily existence wondering if she’d ever find happiness again.

Teenagers. Ethan loved working with them and turning their raw musical talent into something beautiful and rewarding, but that didn’t fill the black void in his soul.

Like fate, the songwriters’ muse nudged Giselle and Ethan together. But can Giselle overcome her fears and can Ethan get past the darkness that surrounds him, so they can find love?

Know the Heroine from Love in the Key of C

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Plays her flute. A gift from her Nana.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

At the moment, she is always hungry. She fantasizes about hot chicken noodle soup.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Warm wooly sweaters and thick comfy socks.

Does she know how to fix things?

No. If she could, the first thing she’d fix is her life.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Life.  Circumstances overwhelmed her and now she is living on the streets.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Tense. She’d like to run and hide. She doesn’t want to hear their taunts. Her life at the moment is not what she’d planned.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Scared about facing another day. If she buskers at a corner, will anyone donate? Can she make enough to find shelter and food for another night?

Can she use chopsticks?

It has been so long that she doesn’t know if she still can.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Hot coffee with lots of cream and sugar. That makes it sweet and fills the coldness in her stomach.

What apps would she have on her phone?

She has no phone. Phones cost money and every cent she gets is put towards food and shelter.

Android or iPhone?

When she has enough money to purchase a phone, whatever kind Ethan has.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Pierced but no earrings to wear. They were stolen.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?


Personal vehicle or public transport?

When she is lucky enough to afford it, public transport.

Recycle or toss?

Neither. Keep everything. It might become useful later.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
