Here we are, back again with the May edition of Beautiful People. This month, I am so excited to introduce you to the main character of a current WIP, Ocean Hues. Meet Chelsea Sanders.
She smiles frequently, and yes, she would smile at a stranger.
What is the cruelest thing they’ve ever been told? And what was their reaction?
The cruelest thing was her Grandma saying that she was “appalled and humiliated” to be seen with Chelsea. Her reaction…hmmm…her reaction was shock and ‘smoothing over’ at first, then lots of tears after it sunk in.
What is the kindest thing they’ve ever been told? And what was their reaction?
Kindest thing? Hmm. Probably that he (her daddy) is proud of her and will love her no matter what. And that her mom (who died when Chelsea was a toddler) would be proud of the young woman she’s become.
She responded by getting pink cheeks and growing very quiet. Not a typical Chelsea reaction, I assure you.
What is one strong memory that has stuck with your character from childhood? Why is it so powerful and lasting?
Naming the Cora Lee. It lasted because Chelsea’s mother had just died, and it’s the only time she remembers her daddy crying.
Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud. Everyone should read this book, but Chelsea needs it extra bad.
Have they ever been seriously injured? How severely? How did they react?
No, she hasn’t been seriously injured. Yet. That might change through the course of the book. :)
Do they like and get along with their neighbors?
Yes, though in New York the neighbors aren’t exactly friendly. She gets along better with the garden workers than the homeowners themselves.
On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being easy and 10 being difficult) how easy are they to get along with?
Eight. She’s the sort of person I want to know.
Hawaii. She’s used to Seattle, Alaskan, and New York weather. Somewhere warm is her dream.
Who was the last person they held hands with?
Hehe…with Rhett Newman at the airport, saying good-bye.
Where would you go if you could travel anywhere in the world? Are any of you doing this Beautiful People link-up? Let me know in the comments…I’d love to read about your characters!
