Meet My Main Character: Jade


Meet my main character, Jade from my novel, Jade.

Jade reminds me of Anita Blake in many ways. Not only does she kick ass, she has all these fabulous talents and powers, drawing from many supernatural creatures like vamps, shifters, witches and Fae. She has been called the mutt of the supernatural world. How she got that way is part of the mystery and surprise that is revealed in the book.

She is also like Bruce Wayne. Her real nature is hidden even from her friends and is only gradually revealed. And she is rich, seriously rich. That's part of the fun as well. She loves buying clothes, and she always goes for the best.

Despite her money and her various talents, she has some flaws. Her body needs a lot of fuel and will tolerate only certain things. Red wine is one thing she likes. She orders wine by the bottle, not the glass. Dark coffee and dark chocolate. A good breakfast for Jade is a six shot espresso and a chunk of chocolate. Steak. Jade likes her steak crispy on the outside and red and juicy on the inside. And of course, blood, human blood. Just about anything else will make her violently ill. If she doesn't get fed on a regular basis she gets weak and sometimes passes out.

She can't drive worth poop. Despite her great reflexes, eyesight, hearing, and reaction times, she has this problem with running into and over things. She had to use her magic to cheat in order to pass a driving test. One of the many humorous things in Jade is a car chase in which she is driving. I call it adventures in driving. Too funny.

Jade is very naive. She is not used to socializing and makes many mistakes in her relationships. From a romantic point of view she is very innocent. Jade has never been kissed. She thinks she is in love with a shifter bear and does everything she can to be like him in order to attract his attentions. Of course what happens instead is they become best buddies. I think one spoiler everyone knows by now is that she gets the vamp girl instead. That relationship will continue to grow in Book 2 (Jane).

Jade makes friends easily and is very loyal. One of the main themes in Jade is friendship. To find out more about Jade you will have to read the book. I think you will be surprised as her secrets are revealed.
