Emery (Granger) MacTaggart
Birthplace: Idaho, USA
Profession: unemployed computer programmer
Please provide a physical description.
Emery is blonde and curvy, with blue eyes.
Please tell us a little about your character.
She’s a free spirit, unconventional in many ways but influenced by her traditionalist family. Emery loves to wear skimpy outfits, adores being silly as often as possible, and geeks out on superhero movies. Getting laid off from her job freed her from the daily grind but has left her broke and rudderless.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
His name is Rory MacTaggart, and he’s the second-oldest sibling in the MacTaggart clan. He’s also the only brother who hasn’t found a new wife, and the only one with three failed marriages in his past. He marries Emery to stop his family from pestering him to get a wife.
How does your heroine dress?
Emery likes to say she enjoys being as naked as possible at all times — without getting arrested, of course! She loves short-shorts and short skirts, but she also goes for jeans and a T-shirt when she wants to be super comfy.
How educated is this character?
Emery has a bachelor’s degree in computer programming, but her knowledge of all things ComicCon is entirely self-taught.
Does she scrape by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?
Since getting laid off from her job, she’s running out of money. For years, she focused on paying off her student loans — at the cost of not having much fun. She lives in a tiny, one-room apartment, at least until she accepts Rory’s scandalous offer for a marriage of convenience.
What is your character’s family like?
Emery comes from a loving family with two parents who are still married, and a younger sister who’s married with two twin daughters. She knows her family will do anything for her, and she feels the same about them.
Is she close to family?
In terms of their relationships with each other, yes. In terms of geography, no. Her parents live in Australia, and her sister lives in Germany.
If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would she most NOT want it to be, and why?
Emery hopes never to see her ex-boyfriend, Sebastian. The guy has serious issues and caused her a lot of grief.
Can your heroine keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?
She can, but she hates secrets. They cause more trouble than they’re worth. This is why Emery insists she and Rory be totally honest with each other.
How emotionally expressive is your character to others?
Oh my, this girl has no qualms about showing her feelings! Emery hugs pretty much anybody who’s nice to her and tends to fling herself at her new husband whenever he does something sweet for her.
Who in her life has the power to hurt this character the most? Why?
That would be Rory, her new husband. Though she senses he has traumas in his past, he won’t talk about it. And his determination not to love her…Well, she worries that might drive him to break her heart even while his reluctant tenderness touches her deeply.
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?
She knows how much fun I am, and that Rory needs a weirdo for a wife. Who else could make him loosen up?
What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
That thing with Sebastian… Ick. Did the world need to know about that?
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
Because we characters are awesome! Seriously, why else would anybody put up with our craziness? We make real people smile, laugh, cry, and sometimes want to smack us. But always, we’re loads of fun.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
Ooooh, that’s a hard one! Of course, I want more Hot Scots books. But I also love those paranormal stories. I am a ComicCon geek, after all, and can’t get enough of hunky guys with superpowers.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Does Anna want me to spill the beans? Hmm…Not sure, but here goes! My new sister-in-law Jamie and her onetime boyfriend, the American Gavin Douglas, need a little bit of help with their broken romance. I told Anna I needed to meddle, just this once, and she’s letting me go crazy with it! Their story is Gift-Wrapped in a Kilt: A Hot Scots Christmas Tale, coming later this year.
