Meet Geneva Anderson

Tell us about your heroine --- the female lead in your book.

What's her name?

Geneva Anderson

Why did you pick that name?

Geneva is the name of a lady who is the best friend of a friend of mine. Anderson is my grandmother and uncle’s last name. I picked Geneva because it sounds exotic and unusual. The name seemed perfect for my heroine who has a unique way of looking at things and lives an unusual life.

Give us a brief description of how she looks.

Geneva is about 5’5 with short, black hair that she wears curled under. She is chubby with light brown skin and wears glasses.

Is there anything unusual about her appearance?


Who does she love? Why?

She is secretly in love with the leader of her poetry workshop, Xavier Lakemore. They have never dated. But the only reason that she joined the workshop was to be around him. She has always had problems with men.

Does this person love her?

No, he doesn’t know how deep her feelings for him go.

Tell us about her family.

She doesn’t have any family. Geneva’s father abused her mother and her mother died when she was young. She grew up alone. She only had her aunt Victoria who was murdered. Geneva idolized Victoria.

Where is she from?

She is from Chicago, Illinois.

Does her hometown affect her behavior, thoughts and attitude?

She is very street smart and not afraid to take risks. She is not afraid to find out who really murdered her aunt.

What does she want out of life?

She wants to be a successful poet. She wants to be loved. Geneva thinks that she can only find this love in a man.

What's her biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.)

She wishes that she had murdered her father before his abuse killed her mother. She thinks that she is coward for not doing this.

Did you write more than one story about her?

Not yet. This is the first book in a series featuring the protagonist, Geneva Anderson. I am currently refining the outline for the second book.

How would she describe you?

She would describe me as being slightly obsessive compulsive, reserved, and independent.

Is there anything else about your heroine that we need to know? Feel free to share.

Geneva is resourceful and not afraid to step out on a limb. She focuses on getting the job done sometimes without regard to the consequences.
