The ever wonderful and very talented Brettarts has drawn two more of my characters for me. They are Craven Winship and Jeremiah Carson. You can check them out on the Meet The Characters Page by clicking here.
Here is some more information exclusive to this post that you might be interested in:
Craven is the father of my protagonist, Melora. He is an incredibly astute man with a head for figures, hailing from a very wealthy family who owned an accountancy firm. Though open-minded and entrepreneurial, he can also a bit of an obdurate traditionalist, which leads to conflict with his equally headstrong daughter.
Jeremiah meanwhile is father to my deuteragonists, Jaspher and John. Originally the captain of a timber trading vessel, he has always preferred a life at sea to running the family business, happy to leave such matters to other people, such as his own father, his wife Sofia, and now his son, Jaspher.
Though they are two very different men with very different priorities and hailing from opposite ends of the social spectrum, together Craven and Jeremiah own the shipbuilding company Winship and Carson, where the vast majority of events in Book One take place.
If you are wondering where the two mothers are (Annabel Winship and Sofia Carson respectively), they are both unfortunately dead. Bearing children in the 18th century-esque was an incredibly risky business. Though doctors and hospitals by this point were becoming more involved in the birthing process, this wasn’t necessarily a good thing. In fact, it often made things a whole lot worse!
