Interview, Classes and Thirteen Memorable Fictional Characters

Today I am doing and interview with Mike Woody on his blog about my novel Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series). Please check out Mike’s site and learn more about the adventures of Kate O’Donnell, Phillip Norwood and other characters in Thicker Than Water. During January and February you can download the Ebook from for $2.99.

The interview made me think of the most memorable characters from five of my favorite books or series of books. The following is my list.

Scarlett O’ Hara and Rhett Butler from Margaret Mitchell’s  Gone With The Wind

Stephanie Plum, Joe Morelli and Ranger from the Stephanie Plum Novels by Janet Evanovich (One for the Money etc)

Eve Dallas and Roark from the In Death series by J. D. Robb (Naked in Death etc)

Lucas Davenport and Weather Karkennon  from the Prey Series by John Sandford (Mortal Prey etc)

Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s  The Great Gatsby

I hope. someday, Kate and Phillip from Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series) will make some of these kinds of lists.

Which characters and books would make your list?
