Understanding Lara from In My Own Shadow, a new #Fantasy #romance by Susan A Royal #RLFblogSusan A Royal, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Meet Lara

Age: early twenties

Gender: female

Birthplace: I’m a country girl, born and raised in a rural area.

Profession: Entry level clerical work

Ethnicity: White

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall. Nearly six feet. Dark blue eyes and long thick hair – the color red everyone seems to want these days.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Something about me seems to intimidate guys. Could be my sarcastic attitude. That’s what my friend, Carrie, seems to think. And she’s right. It’s my defense mechanism.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Never in a million years thought I’d fall for a guy like Rhys. Quiet, capable, keeps to himself. He takes his job seriously…even to the point of blaming himself when things go wrong, the way I did when Dad died. Only one problem. He treats me like an unwanted responsibility. Every time I try to get to know him better, he clams up and starts acting like commando man. And it goes downhill from there. I let him get under my skin..

What special skills do you rely on?

Lara and her father spent a lot of time in the woods while she was growing up. Hunting, camping, fishing.

What do you have a knack for doing?

Lara’s stubborn. She won’t give up on something she believes in.

Is she close to family?

Lara had no brothers or sisters, and her mother died when she was very young. She and her father were very close.

How do others perceive your character based upon looks? How true is this assumption?

In the book, her best friend Carrie refers to her as the redhead with a killer figure, and she’s spot on.

If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would she most want it to be, and why? OR who would she most NOT want it to be, and why?

Lara would give anything to see her father again. They argued just before he died and she’s never gotten over it.

Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?

Lara can keep a secret. Something important has been planted in her memory. She has no idea what it is, but she refuses to let someone pick her brain to find out. Especially someone who will use the information for all the wrong reasons.

What inner doubt causes your character the most difficulty?

Lara doesn’t realize how strong she really is.

What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?

Lara needs to forgive herself. She’s not responsible for her father’s death.

What would help your character face hardship and meet any challenge?

If she knew how Rhys truly felt about her, she’d have the strength to do anything.

How does your character express disappointment?

She gets angry.

Who in his life has the power to hurt this character the most? Why?

Rhys . Because Lara cares about him.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?

I wish she hadn’t told anyone who I feel about Rhys. It’s embarrassing.

Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?

I’m stronger than I thought.

What makes your writer the most sad?

It makes her sad to think me losing my father, but she’s happy that I came to terms with his death.

Why do you think your writer loves to write?

She loves words and how they can paint a picture.
