“YOUR FEAR BECOMES YOU”
We can run, but we can’t hide from our fears. Neither can characters in books. Writers won’t let them. Thus, I decided, to better acquaint you with several character in MALICIOUS MISCHIEF, 1st in the Rylie Keyes romantic mystery series, I would share what scares the heck out of them.
~ Marianne Harden
RYLIE KEYES: Rylie faints at the sight of blood. Bam! She’s out cold. I had fun with this phobia. I hope you’ll agree once you read the hilarious, but tragic disaster I wreaked on her.
SOLOSOLO NAMULAU’ULU: Like the mighty elephant fears the humble mouse, Solo is terrified of honeybees. How often do I make him suffer? Never. But you don’t believe that, do you?
OFFICER ZACH O’NEIL: Zach shot and killed a thief in the line of duty, so the idea of taking another life haunts him. However, one thing disturbs this gorgeous man even more: the possibility of hurting a woman who shares his bed should he experience while asleep a PTSD flashback, a condition he’s suffered since the fatal robbery.
DETECTIVE THAD TALON: True enough, this hunky Scotsman shows no fear. But it seems to me that
most people with a secret life would reel at having to choose between their covert, yet crucial objective and much desired love.
DETECTIVE KARL LIPSCHITZ: You won’t like him. I know I don’t. What a pain he was to write. So I’m
happy to report that I gave him a ridiculous fear by which he would garner no sympathy from anyone. Lipschitz, the asshat, is afraid of butterflies. I think it’s a riot. Rylie does, too.
HAWTHORNE KEYES, Rylie’s granddad: Though he doesn’t know how to show much emotion, Hawthorne fears loosing Rylie as he did his daughter, Rylie’s mother, when she abandoned Rylie as a baby and disappeared, never to be heard from again.
GILAD KUPPER: Senior citizen Gilad worries over contracting a disease. He’s a germaphobe to the max. He even has a germ-killing wand.
CRAZY WALTER: Those voices in his head, he dreads them. They keep him up at night; they taunt him, and because of this, he will do something horrible. Just wait.
TITA IGLESIAS: Tita, a classic tough girl and former gang member, is now a talented chef and loving mother. Nonetheless, she fears coming off as weak and vulnerable. She won’t allow it. She can’t allow it.
I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek into the fears torturing the lives of some of the characters in
MALICIOUS MISCHIEF, 1st in the Rylie Keyes romantic mystery series. What do you fear? How does it
control you? ~Marianne Harden
