Guest Post - Dark Magick The Gatekeepers
Characters In Our Books
So this post is about what I think of the characters. :) I will list them and go through with a description of what I think of them!
Rhea- I love her because she is so family based! She has a supporting husband, and wonderful children, and they are as loyal to her as she is to them! The thing about Rhea is that even though she is fighting the good fight, there are times that her internalized anger gets the better of her, and she almost enjoys hurting the people who have hurt her family and threaten her home life. Rhea has a dark side. Like most of the characters, but she can be unpredictable. For the most part she keeps her cool!
Lynn- She is the spunk in the book! :) She is the go getter! Hard headed, and very focused on what she is doing, and her mission. Lynn has to do more then just fight her battles, she also has to fight her emotions, which adds for some interest as we write the books! Lynn has a lot on her plate, in some ways more then the other characters. Sometimes it seems like she can't see that there are others to help her! LOL I love how complex Lynn is! She cracks me up!
Kalerian- Sometimes I want to take a pillow and smother him!! He seems to be everything that a woman would despise in a guy!! He is smug and arrogant, yet there is this power that resonates from him that you can't help but to be attracted to! :) It brings a real life effect into the character, Because there are men like this in the world, and sometimes women end up with them, and are never really sure why, but only that they love them!
Acacia- She is what I refer to as A-morale. She has morals, she has some standards, but they are based on her own needs, and basic desires. Her will to live and have power out way any of her loyalties to anyone. She wants to control and dictate, and have the ultimate say in the end, and she will do anything to get it!
Raiden- He turned out to be one of my favorite characters, he is funny and witty, and the complete comic relieve in our book. He also has deep burning passion that he suppresses and shows through his humor, but he is very loyal to Lynn and will love to die with her, fighting by her side! :) Raiden took on a life of his own in the book, and I really had a lot of fun helping shape his personality and purpose in the book.
Tyler- He is an actual Warlock, there is taboo on this word, it originates from lair. To call him a witch would be the wrong use of his character. He is like Acacia in many ways, he is looking out for number one, but he thinks he owns Rhea, and that no matter what she does or says, he thinks they are equals and that she can truly be only his!
Chris- He came in the book leading a group to safety. He is helplessly in love with his wife, who is an evil person who cheats on him with his best friend! Chris is a healer, I think we will see more of Chris in later books!
About the Authors:
Stevie lives in Wyoming with her family. She loves the wide open space There is nothing better than sitting out on the prairie looking out at the stars, or driving less than an hour to the Mountains and climbing trees, and yes she still climbs trees! :)
Stevie started to write short stories when she was 12. She loves poetry and started to write poems when she was 13. She then stopped writing in her early 20s, due to raising a family and focusing her attention elsewhere. When she was 30 she started to write again.
A couple of years later the Gatekeeper series emerged. She and her co author spent many hours talking about and discussing the world they created. Stacey really encouraged Stevie to write again.
Currently Stevie is working on a historical romance about the old west in a time of amazing change! She is also working on the second book to the Gatekeeper Series.
Stacey is a wife and mother of three. She started writing in High School with horror short stories. One of her first is now published through the kindle - Silver Bullet. When she's not dreaming up her next story or novel, she can be found hanging out with her kids or reading one of her favorite authors. She is also an avid Facebooker and Twitter user. Stop by her website to see what she's working on and any of her backlist work.
The world has changed, we have changed. The world we once knew has fallen away and left us in a wasteland of Magick. Powerful witches and underworld gods control our lives. The past comes back in ways we are not prepared for. The Gatekeepers are our only hope. The question is if we can get to them first.
