Thank you for having me on your lovely blog. I’m truly honored.

I’m here today to talk about the characters in my romantic suspense novel, Black Creek Burning. One of my goals in writing is to create characters that are diverse, real and interesting. I suppose I should listen to my reviews and feel accomplished in this area.

Brianna Chapman is the only witness to the murder of her parents … an arson that was meant for her. Over the years, she learns to bury her guilt by keeping busy and building a careful metaphorical wall around her. She’s aloof to personal relationships and it works. She’s smart and fit, although could never be deemed as a pretty woman in the standards of society. She loves working with her golden retriever and avoids any real time or connection in the home she inherited … the home that belonged to her parents.

Nathan Reed is a nationally renowned woodworking artist. In the height of his career, he inherits his two young nephews. After a handful of years failing at parenthood, he sells his woodworking studio and moves back to fictitious Northridge, New York to be closer the boys only other living relatives, their grandparents. He moves into a historic rundown farmhouse with plans to rebuild the beauty as he builds memories for his nephews. Behind the house is Black Creek. Beyond Black Creek is a classic Victorian and a confusing brunette. Nathan finds Brianna curt, quizzical and a puzzle he can’t seem to ignore.

Brianna sees Nathan as a lazy father with an unruly Labrador who moves his sons into a disgusting house so he can play in his garage while pawning off his boys to his parents. He might be a sexy, swaggering father and the boys might be completely adorable, but still …

As an author, I believe in the power of secondary characters. They add emotion, ties with family and/or friends and depth. Nathan’s nephews are six and eight years old. The younger is a fast-talking, funny little guy who often states the obvious, even if it is completely inappropriate. The older nephew has too many painful memories of his parents and the awful job Nathan has done filling in for them. He keeps his distance, calls his uncle by his first name although his brother refers to him as, ‘dad,’ and minds his own business --- he and Brianna have much in common and find much to discover together.

Brianna Chapman has learned to handle just about anything. Witnessing the murder of her parents had that effect. Knowing the unsolved arson had been meant for her is the one thing she can’t handle. Instead of dwelling, she stuffs her guilt soundly into her subconscious through diving into the teaching job she loves by day and the dirt of the landscaping business she owns by night. Her habit of remaining aloof to personal relationships is, well, working.

Will her guilt be as easy to keep buried if the killer comes back to finish the job?

In the midst of juggling a scorched yard, dead animals on her doorstep, and her vandalized car, the one thing she didn’t count on was the staggering Nathan Reed. A nationally renowned woodworking artist, Nathan and his two priceless nephews move into the run-down historical house behind her and over Black Creek. They have a canny way of maneuvering around her aloof demeanor and into her heart. Will they still want to be part of her life when they discover she is haunted by past memories and hunted by present dangers?
