Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): humanoid
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I will allow my Lady Zera’s observations to answer this question.
The High Lord of Alphxorn, taller than her by almost a full head, seemed to tower over her. — Sarc’s dark hair showed a hint of auburn accenting his strong, masculine face. The determined and confident set of his firm jaw and chin further indicated the measure of sound character. She gazed a second longer to glimpse past the stern countenance he portrayed. His demeanor suggested a man of courage and honor. Still, a hint of arrogance slipped through.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Lord Sarc was brought up to rule! He swore to his dying father, and again on the assumption of the Throne of Alphxorn, to protect his world. Marauding pirates threatened Seti-Cronus, their civilization’s birth planet and neighbor and Sarc knew his world and rule were next. An honorable lord, he offered marriage to their ruler, Lady Zera. She refused. He had already conquered her world but Sarc allowed her to defend her throne. Defeating her, he offered her a choice of ruling by his side or as his slave. His judge of character, proven right, he and Zera married and she retained her position as High Lady of Seti-Cronus and as a warrior. But Sarc, as a husband, finds her role as a warrior difficult to accept.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Lady Zera. Sarc has known no other like her. Convincing her to join the two worlds garnered his respect but acknowledging her as a fighter forces him to face losing her. Zera quickly became part of him and will challenge his rule and his oaths.
What are the qualities of his voice? (pitch, quality, volume)
Lord Sarc rarely raises his voice, instead, richness and depth command attention. When addressing his court, he pitches his voice to be heard at the back of his throne room without electronic aid. Taught from childhood how to modulate his voice, he can reveal emotion or withhold it. His frigid toned judgement on an adversary has been known to cause them to tremble. Zera knew panic for the first time in her life, when, after their duel he whispered to her his terms of her defeat.
Is he close to family?
Sarc is extremely close to his younger, nineteen-year-old brother. Aware of his brother’s quick mind and knack for military matters, he often seeks his council.
Does this character see morality as black-and-white, or with shades of gray?
Sarc realizes the nuances of the everyday life of his subjects of his world. However, in his private life he is less sensitive, and tends to expect the same level of honor he holds sacred.
What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?
Before meeting Zera, he feared a life without that special person or a soulmate.
What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?
He is secure in his role as a warrior and in his rule. Love was his concern.
How emotionally expressive is your character to others?
Sarc’s childhood training allows him to withhold showing his emotions or express them in a manner suiting the situation.
Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most? Why?
Zera. She holds his heart in her palm. In his mind, only dereliction to his duty could hurt him worse than her loss.
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 think Lady Zera had a great deal to do with it. She can be persistent and Zera knows we all have more stories to tell. You might enjoy her interview. I’ve included the link
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
She could have omitted the scene where I am paraded around the Luithian court almost naked.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
Alphxorn and Seti-Cronus are filled with varied and interesting subjects. Seti-Cronus, our people’s birth world, has history that goes back into the mists of time and is more tolerant by nature. However, Alphxorn has yet to be completely explored. One reason our people migrated here was political, but not entirely. There is great mineral wealth here and room for a culture to grow.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
My younger brother Phorx. He hasn’t had the burden of sovereign rule and he is a fearless fighter. A less weighty childhood allows him to be more personable. His adventures scream to be told.

It’s been awhile, about four years, since I last published. I hope those who have, in the past, read my works haven’t forgotten me. Since then I’ve moved a couple of times, have had a few adventures and have finally found home. My husband, daughter, two dogs and several cats, have settled into a cute little bump in the road town in Eastern Tennessee. Our valley is so tucked away in between mountain ridges our cell phones don’t receive necessitating a landline and satellite everything else. I know for sure the rock wall in our backyard, that serves as property divider, is Civil War era. It’s a great place for my wayward imagination. Seriously, I think we have fae frequenting the backyard and at night I expect to see a UFO land in the hayfield I can see out the front bay-windows.
Though I have kept my website up and running, until about a year ago I’ve had a major writer’s block that I managed to move past. I also made the decision to Indie publish. While I do have one book, Tail of the Dragon, which remains with Decadent Publishing, I have withdrawn my other works. Over the next months, I plan to republish them beginning with Blood of the Ruby Throne. The others will follow after I’ve revisited them. With the assistance of a wonderful editor, I have had the pleasure to work with, you will see them re-released. I also have several new works coming, as well as a series I’ve been working on for a long time.
I’ve missed being an active author and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
