One woman's amazing journey from hobby writer to published author

Okay, so I’m a day late on this one.  I just couldn’t decide on a character to highlight, and then I couldn’t decide on a format.  Now I have a list made up and Mondays will be a lot easier.

Today’s character highlight is the main character from my epic romantic fantasy series.  I’m basing this off of what I know and what I’ve written, but it could be subject to change before I’m finished and published.   I really enjoy writing for this character.  She’s got a gothic heroine feel to her and I really like working with that.

Name: Taerwyn Davies (Taerwyn Soldaris)
Project:  Soldaris Saga

Features: long blonde hair, green eyes, athletic build, average height

Personality:  compassionate, intelligent, loyal, determined/stubborn/headstrong, caring, emotional

Strengths: Learns quickly, sings well, loyal to the end with her friends, determined to see her calling in life fulfilled

Weaknesses: Can over-react emotionally, is physically smaller/weaker than most of her colleagues or enemies, sometimes lets her stubbornness get her into trouble, goes charging in to get things done without thought to consequences
