My name is Moyra Tarling and I'm a published author of 15+ Romance novels
and am meantime working on a mystery novel. I've been doing research for a
female character I'm creating, a character who is a BK amputee.
Wayne, your list owner, has already been kind enough to answer some
questions for me... But I'm hoping that one (or more) of the women on this
list might be willing to "chat" to me via email/ and help me bring this
character to life, and to give a female perspective.
If any of you are mystery readers my Novel would be characterized as an
Amateur Sleuth Mystery. My protagonist is Samantha MacLean a woman of
30... She is a Photo Journalist working in the Middle East when a bomb goes
off in a restaurant where she is eating and as a result she loses the lower
part of her left leg.
She returns to her home town of Whisper Lake (a small fictional town in
British Columbia, Canada) to live with her cousin and come to terms with
this tragedy, only to discover that her cousin has been murdered. Sam
sets out to uncover the murderer.
This will also be a novel of personal growth and I'm hoping Sam will become
an ongoing character in subsequent mystery novels.
If any of the women on the list is willing to 'talk' to me, to answer
questions that will probably get a little personal ... I'd really
appreciate any help I can get.
