Today the spotlight shines on.............................Nina Parker
Tracey Bateman is a multi published author, well know for her Chick Lit and romance novels. With Thirsty, Tracey turns her hand to a novel of addiction, suspense and redemption.
I hope you enjoy this insight into Nina. Over to you, Tracey:~
Brief physical description
Nina Parker: Exotic, dark skinned, almost native American-looking, but white. Dark, long, completely straight hair. Dark brown eyes, beautiful, tiny, but curvy where it matters.
Demi Moore is probably the closest, but not exactly. I see her face softer than Demi, her eyes more gentle and vulnerable. Maybe a long-haired Demi Moore from Ghost.
Strengths and weaknesses
She is fiercely loyal, loves at any cost. But that's also her weakness because she takes every criticism, every raised-eyebrow look straight to her heart and it drives her forward to good things but also destructive behaviors. She has an addictive personality and a need for approval. Struggles as a recovering alcoholic.
Quirk (if any)
This might be my first heroine ever without a quirk.
Your inspiration for the character
Myself and a compilation of people I know with a need to please and addictive personalities.
Background to the story
Nina lost her vet business and her family because of her alcoholism. She returns to Abbey Hills to pull it all together.
The background as far as writing the story...I decided to draw from my family addictions and parallel it to the vampire's addiction to blood.
Tracey ~ thanks for sharing about Nina and the inspiration behind this book.
On Thursday, I will be spotlighting Juliana Brady & Josh McBride from Maggie Brendan's The Jewel of His Heart. Stay tuned!
