Author Billie Langford - MEET MY CHARACTER


I’m highlighting my main character from my currently untitled work in progress.

1.    What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or historical person?

My main character is a fictional character Erynn Smith.

2.    When and where is the story set?

The story is set in present day England with references to Erynn’s past.

3.    What should we know about her?

Erynn is as strong as she is broken. At first glance, she’s intelligent, funny, and beautiful. When she speaks, she comes off as polite but cold, distant. Underneath it all is a girl that has seen and endured things that would make the toughest men weep. Her attitude protects her broken heart, spirit, and secret.

4.    What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?

The main conflict in the story is Erynn confronting her past. She’s spent her whole life burying it and running from it, but never facing it. However, when a recently discovered archaeological site is uncovered near her childhood home, she is forced to face it head on. The resulting collision could be deadly for her and Jack.

5.    What is the personal goal of the character?

The years of being depressed on lonely have worn on Erynn. She wants a fulfilling life. So, her overall goal is to move forward with her life. Instead of simply existing, she wants to live and find happiness.  

6.    Is there a working title for the novel, and can we read more about it?

Currently, the working title for this book is No Working Title. I haven’t come up with a title that encompasses the feel of the book without giving away its secrets right away. There isn’t anything else online about my book right now since it isn’t complete. However, if anyone is interested in reading what is complete, I would love to share it. I welcome suggestions and criticisms because both are learning opportunities.

7.    When can we expect the book to be published?

Currently, I am about half way through the book. After reading what I have completed, there are a few changes that I need to make before I can move forward with the last half, but I have an outline of what needs to be added and changed. I am hoping to have the manuscript completed in the next couple of months. I would say it should be published in the next six months.
