When I craft characters, more often than not, a picture forms in my head that tends to resemble an actor or singer or model—someone with lots of pictures on the internet anyway. I like having physical images of my characters to refer to. Mainly because, when it comes to the guys at least, they are yumtastic.
And I do so love shiny things.
So, when Max Shaw stopped in for a visit as I was writing Of Course I Try, I had an immediate picture of him. Long dark hair, really intense blue eyes, big and muscly. The kind of guy you’d be scared to see in a dark alley, and really excited to see on a blind date.
Now, to be fair, I always saw Max as bigger than Christian Kane, but facially and general “type” of musculature. Yeah, he’s Max all the way. And considering Max is fond of singing to Jocelyn, it doesn’t hurt that the guitar isn’t just for show.
Doesn’t hurt that the girl in that video looks a little like Jocelyn (though too skinny).
If you want more of Christian Kane, check him out on Leverage or grab his album. But if you want more of Max, check out the Blood Kissed series.
And, of course, if you want more Seleste, you can find me all over the internet.
