In #MyBooksIn30Seconds series, I introduced you to Daniel, a friend who was the muse for the character Daniel in I Can Handle Him. In #25 of #MyBooksIn30Seconds series, I introduce you to Davis, my friend who was my inspiration for the character Davis in Plebeian Revealed, Plebeian In Danger, Plebeian Reborn and The Doctor, The Chef or the Fireman.
I don't prefer to name fictional characters after the real names of the people who inspire them. In Daniel's case, I had no choice! We had been working together on the character development and when I told him my name ideas for that character, he insisted it be Daniel! In Davis' case, he never knew I was writing a character who would be a best friend to the main character, Lauren. Since this was my first-ever book and I didn't know what I was doing, I had put the name "Davis" in as a placeholder as I wrote. And now I know, a writer shouldn't do that because it makes it too easy to get attached to that name. So that's how Davis ended up being not only an inspiration, but also the fictional name in the book.
Watch episode #25 to meet Davis!
