This week on the blog hop, the lovely and talented Kathryn Renard asks:
Who's your celebrity crush and what makes/him her crush-worthy? Or, which character have you written that you have a crush on?
I have to go backward and read Kathryn's post. Since this was her idea, I'm very interested to see who she crushes on!
As for me, I have a weakness for smart, resourceful and cunning characters. Add in a hint of sarcasm and I'm hooked. That's probably why Harrison Ford tops my list of celebrity crushes (sorry, am I showing my age? Wait, it gets worse – I named my cat after him!). After all, he portrayed two such iconic characters.
As for crushes on my own characters, that's a bit trickier. Not because I don't crush on them – after all, I spend months writing about them, so I'd better like them! If I had to pick, today's favourite might be Justice, from my soon to be released contemporary suspense When Time Falls Still. He's the strong, silent type, who hides his caring, protective heart under a blunt, gruff exterior. He gave up a professional hockey career when his father was paralyzed in a work accident and is raising his son as best he can despite being divorced from the boy's mother. Then Charlotte, a workaholic university professor comes into his life, and he finds one more person who needs him. Especially with an assailant stalking women on campus…
I wonder who Marc Stevens has a crush on. Keep moving along the hop to find out!
