I would like to first thank author Karysa Faire for including me in the wonderful opportunity to discuss one of my characters. Before I get into that, I’d like to introduce you to Karysa. Besides writing, she also heads up a wonderful event on Facebook called Snippet Sunday where you can read excerpts from different author’s current work in progress. You can find answers to her character she introduced last week at:http://wp.me/p1t6NZ-Ac

Karysa is a writer of the romantic, the unseen, the other worldly and the horrific. Residing in Northern California with her daughter, dog, and cat, she reads when she can and cleans her house when she has to.

~Meet My Character: Amiria~

What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person.

Amiria of Berwyck is one of the last remaining descendants of the Scottish clan MacLaren. She is a fictional character.

When and where is the story set?

The story is set in twelfth century England at Berwyck. The castle is situated on a high cliff and is a prime location bordering England and Scotland. It’s seen many years of war between two kings struggling to keep control of the area.

What should we know about her?

Amiria would rather be dressed in boots, hose, and tunic than stuck in a solar with needle and thread. She can be a bit stubborn but has a soft side to her too.

What is the main conflict? What messes up her life?

The main conflict is that Berwyck castle has been under seize for two fortnights. With the falling of the barbican gate, Amiria’s home is now controlled by the Devil’s Dragon of Blackmore who demands clan MacLaren’s fealty. Amiria hastily concocts a ruse that quickly begins to unravel and that’s only the beginning of what begins to disturb her.

What is the personal goal of the character?

She is fiercely loyal to her family and will do anything to protect them. To say anything more would give away some of the twists and turns I have planned for my readers!

Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?

If My Heart Could See You debuted eighteen days ago and hit several of Amazon’s Hot New Release lists along with being in the top ten for its genre in two categories. It is available in paperback and major eBook retailers. Not bad for a first novel!
