Treating a character as a real person might be the best start. Next, give him or her a personality of their own, by way of likes and dislikes, small little idiocracies, greatest fears, biggest loves, what makes them vulnerable and best of all – what makes them strong. Brainstorm or let the thoughts flow, but do it your way. It will only add depth to the character and make all the difference to the success of YOUR book.
Today we welcome author Rose Montague, who gives us her take on Jade from Book One of the Three J’Amigos. The best thing about Rose is that she wants to have fun when writing, thus creating fun books to read. Her writing style does not have too much of pretty prose or flowery fluffiness. Her books give you – non-stop action and fun.What could be better than that?

Let me introduce you to Jade as seen through the eyes of Rose. Jade is a detective with a difference – Shifter, Witch, Fae, and Vamp – all thrown into the magic mix. Book One follows Jade as she investigates a case that could destroy both the Faerie and the Human realms. Her primary allies are Rolfe, her partner and a shifter bear and Jill, the Winter Queen of Faerie. On the run, with nowhere to hide will Jade be able to stop a killer or will she become his next victim? This book is all about Magic, Mayhem, and Mystery with the odds stacked against them; it’s three against three hundred.

Now over to the different shades of Jade viewed by her Creator, Rose Montague

Her real nature is hidden even from her friends and is only gradually revealed.

Jade is very naive. She is not used to socializing and makes many mistakes in her relationships. From a romantic point of view, she is very innocent. Jade has never been kissed. She thinks she is in love with a shifter bear and does everything she can to be like him in order to attract his attentions. Of course what happens instead is they become best buddies. I think one spoiler everyone knows by now is that she gets the vamp girl instead. That relationship will continue to grow in Book 2 (Jane).

Jade makes friends easily and is very loyal. One of the main themes in Jade is friendship.

She is rich, seriously rich. She loves buying clothes, and she always goes for the best. That’s part of the fun as well.

Despite her money and her various talents, she has some flaws. Her body needs a lot of fuel and will tolerate only certain things. Red wine is one thing she likes and dark coffee and dark chocolate. A good breakfast for Jade is a six shot espresso and a chunk of chocolate. She orders wine by the bottle, not the glass. Steak-Jade likes her steak crispy on the outside and red and juicy on the inside. And of course, blood, human blood. Just about anything else will make her violently ill. If she doesn’t get fed on a regular basis she gets weak and sometimes passes out.

She can’t drive worth poop. Despite her great reflexes, eyesight, hearing, and reaction times, she has this problem with running into and over things. She had to use her magic to cheat in order to pass a driving test. One of the many humorous things in Jade is a car chase in which she is driving. To find out more about Jade you will have to read the book. I think you will be surprised as her secrets are revealed.

FIRST THINGS FIRST Simply put I am here because I love books... I am extremely passionate about stories especially those steeped in mythical folklore, ancient myths, and legends and suffused with the magic of unique realms and supernatural worlds. I believe there is an alternate universe where magic, mysticism, and wonder still exist, a world where no reality is impossible. Discovering ourselves is an ongoing journey. From reading the next logical step was writing. I am the author of ‘The Breach’, an upcoming supernatural fantasy.For when I write about these worlds I become a part of them and learn more about myself each day. A PEEK INTO MY SOUL I am a realist but at the same time also a dreamer. To me, reading is a window into the hearts of others . Writing is the window to my imagination drawing from my glimpses of the world around me. The beauty of writing lies in the mind’s eye – what we see, the way we interpret it and finally how we translate it to paper. HOW I VIEW MY CHARACTERS To me, every character is multi-dimensional. There is no mere black or white perspective to a character. If a person is strong, we have to delve into what contributed to making them that way? Similarly, what are the fears, likes and loves of a character. That is what makes each one of them unique. It makes them what they are. No character should be just a filler in a story. If a character is evil, why is he or she that way? If a male character is not the central focus of a story, if he is okay with the girl in his life taking center stage I don’t see him as weak. I think he is a great guy and the kind that any girl would be lucky to have in their lives. Looking for the prince who rescues you from the dragon or the lecherous villain should be passé. Real men may not have muscles but they have good hearts. I write about such princes, the guys who are also okay with the girl playing hero in their life, being rescued by them too. I love reading and writing about girls and women with flaws because all real women are that way. Not the most beautiful, not the bravest, not the thinnest nor the richest. They find strength in their family, in their love. My girls do not compete against men; only circumstances and the challenges they throw up. The men who support them, stand by them are the ones I like to read and write about. Through this blog I hope to share more about inspirational characters and the beauty and richness a book contains. MY INSPIRATION Is it possible to cherish and to love something all your life without really analyzing it or understanding why? ‘Stories’ fired my imagination since I was a child….it started with my father, who would spend thirty minutes each night weaving supernatural tales of troubled ghosts in a bid to awe, shock and above all bond with his daughters. He never realized and neither did I that he was also weaving those little quirks into my personality that later on in life would go ahead and set me apart. During class breaks in school, I would share the same tales with the class, now adding my own embellishments, peaks, and lows so as to hold their attention and leave them shouting for more. As my dad got busier and we got a little older the stories seemed to have trickled off but not before transferring that hook for the beginning, the narration, the mystery and the spectacular end. Books and Movies became my magical time machines capable of drawing, pulling, and holding me. Friends and colleagues would decide to read books or watch movies after I brought to life with words what I read or saw on screen. Even love came to me through books when the first time I met my husband we fell in love over a discussion on ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’. One day I realized what I should have known all along – Stories; they lived in my soul. I had worlds to create, people waiting to be brought to life and stories to share. So I share what I love.
