LOVING MY CHARACTERS
‘The Doyenne’, Jocelyn Robertshaw is the most flamboyant out of all my characters to date, which I think is why I love her so much.
I love all my characters, and another favourite is Elizabeth Goldsworthy-Grant. She is the outrageous mother of my main character in Just Say It, but she’s a bitch. Albeit a bitch you love to hate! In contrast, Jocelyn, although flawed, is a fundamentally good person; after all, everything she did in her life, was for love.
As a murder mystery spoof, The Secret Lives of the Doyenne of Didsbrook has been a joy to write, probably something to do with the fact I wrote the outline of the story before writing it, whereas Just Say It, was an out and out pantser.
