Three More Characters For You To Meet

The magnificent Brettarts has done it again and drawn three more of my characters for you to meet and greet. They are Eleanor “Nell” Shoar, Old Dickie and Elizabeth “Liz” Moore. Unlike all the other characters you’ve met so far –all of whom are introduced in Part One of The Mayor — these three aren’t introduced until Part Two, set nine years later.

You can check them out on the Meet The Characters Page by clicking here.

I hope you love them as much as I do and are intrigued to learn their stories!

Some New Characters For You To Meet!

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!

Meet The Characters

I have added a new section to The Mayor section of my website entitled ‘Meet The Characters’. Here you can see beautiful illustrations of each of my four main characters –Melora, Jaspher, Kale and John — drawn for me by my wonderful illustrator, Brettarts (read more about him in Affiliates).

By clicking a character image you can read more information about their story as well as discover some fun stuff like what dæmon I think they would have (Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials), what Hogwarts house they belong to (J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter) or what Tarot Card I most associate them with.

I may add to these character pages as time goes on so be sure to check back regularly for updates. In the meantime, click here to get acquainted.

Take care,
