Meet The Characters Behind The Story!

Book characters are similar to real people. Some you meet and connect with instantly. Others you get to know over time and maybe a few glasses of wine. Then there are the few that turn you off from the instant of introduction.

When I sat down to write this blog, I tried to come up with a clever and safe way to introduce you to the main characters of Revelation without spoiling their stories.

After racking my brain, I finally decided the best way to get to know them would be to hold a Q&A regarding their favorite things.

Following each character’s answer, you’ll see an author’s comment. A little unknown fact about either the series, or the character that only the author knows.

Their answers (direct from their mouths) are below. Enjoy!!!


Question and Answer Session with Revelation’s Main Characters
None of the answers the characters provided are spoilers for the book series.


Q: What is your favorite color and why?

Eve: “Indigo Blue, because it’s the color of Asher’s eyes.”

Asher: “Black, for obvious reasons. Although, hazel is nice too (winks at Eve).”

Gage: “Also black but my reason is simple, I look hot in it.”

Callan: “Um, definitely green.”

Abby: “Green as well.”

Keegan: “Red without question.”

Kenna: “Red.”

Aria: “I have two, pink and black. It’s super hard to decide.”

Author’s Comment: Eve’s eye color is hazel, in honor of my daughter Maddison, who has the most beautiful shade of hazel eyes, I’ve seen to date.


Q: What is your favorite snack food?

Eve: “Nachos, fully loaded. No beans though.”

Asher:  “French fries covered with bacon, sour cream, and chives.”

Gage: “Does coffee count?”

Callan: “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Oh, you have to freeze them in the freezer.”

Abby:  “Guacamole and Chips.”

Keegan:  “Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing.”

Kenna: “I don’t really snack.”

Aria: “Donuts.”

Author’s Comment: Family dinners and food is something in my house that brings our family together. So food is used the same way in the book, to bring everyone together.


Q: What is your favorite word?

Eve: “Ah it’s definitely: Crap.”

Abby: “I don’t know. Maybe Hi?” (She giggles)

Keegan: “Honor.”

Kenna: “I don’t have a favorite word that is appropriate.”
