I’ve been tagged by the lovely author, Maria Savva to partake in a tour involving my main character.
What are the rules? They’re simple!
I have to answer seven questions about a main character from one of my novels, then I nominate five other authors to answer the same questions.
Here’s a link to Maria’s blog where she introduced her character, Nigel Price. He’s my type of man — tortured and with secrets ;) I can’t wait to read more about him in Maria’s latest book, Haunted.

Here are my responses about Kate Hampton.
1. Tell us a little about this main character. Is she fictional or a historic person?
Kate Hampton is a fictional character from my book, Stranger at Sunset.
2. When and where is the story set?
The story is set around the end of 2012 and the first few months of 2013, primarily in Jamaica, West Indies.
3. What should we know about her?
Kate is a psychiatrist in her mid-thirties. Her defining trait is her intelligence and her ability to assess someone almost immediately upon meeting them.
4. What is the main conflict? What messes up her life?
Her main conflict involves her own mind. There are parts of her life she would rather forget. She is aware an incident from her past has traumatized her, but it’s buried so deep in her subconscious, she is uncertain as to what it is.
5. What is her personal goal?
Her goal is to find out why travel writer, Matthew Kane has written a scathing review of her favorite holiday spot, threatening to shutter the Jamaican resort for good.
6. What are the titles of your novels, and where can we read more about them?
Stranger at Sunset is my first novel, and the first in this genre – psychological mystery/thriller. My previous books were literary erotica written as short stories, novellas, and anthologies. You can find out more about my books at edenbayleebooks.
7. When can we expect your next book to be published?
The next book will also feature Kate Hampton, and it’s called A Fragile Truce. I aim for a trilogy with her as the main character. The new book should release by next year if not sooner. You can read an excerpt of it at the end of Stranger at Sunset.
