My Main Character Blog Hop

I’ve been invited by Celia J Anderson, my lovely Romaniac pal, to take part in this blog hop. You can read about Celia’s main character from Sweet Proposal here.

I thought I would let my main character from Closing In answer the questions herself.

What is your name and are you real or fictious?

I have had two names. My birth name was Helen Matthews but I had to change my name by deed poll. I chose Ellen Newman. I wanted something that was close enough to my original name to make it easier, so I came up with Ellen. As for my surname – Paul Newman has always been one of my Hollywood idols and also because it symbolised the reinvention of myself. I was a new man – man as in humans. I thought I was being quite clever, but it turned out not to be the case.

When and where is your story set?

My story is contempoary, set on the south coast of the UK, in a small seaside village called Felpham.

What should we know about you?

I don’t want to give too much away as I’m hiding from someone but what you need to know about me is that it has taken great courage for me to make this life changing decision, to reinvent myself, and start anew. My escape and reinvention took many months to plan and although I was frightened, I knew it had to be done. However, I have come to realise that I can’t run forever.

What is the main conflict? What messes up your life?

My main conflict is whether to run or to face up to my past. A classic case of Flight, Fight, Freeze or Fawn.

What messes up my life – is having to face up to things I never wanted to.

What is your goal?

To be free. To be happy. To love and be loved.

What is the book title?

Closing In.

Closing In is available through Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Kobo, GooglePlay, iTunes

 

Thanks for tagging me Celia, I’m now nominating my fellow HarperImpulse author Wendy Lou Jones, author of ‘The Songbird and The Soldier’, with her soon to be released second novel, ‘By My Side’.

New Release : Closing In by Sue Fortin

Officially known as Publication Day, unofficially known as ‘Happy Dance Day’ – of which I shall be doing a lot.

Helen has had to leave everything she’s ever known behind; her home, her family, even her own name.

Now, returning to the UK as Ellen Newman, she moves to a small coastal village, working as a nanny for Donovan, a criminal psychologist. Attractive, caring and protective, this single father and his sweet daughter are a world away from Ellen’s brutal past. She thinks she’s escaped. She thinks she’s safe.

But something’s wrong.

Strange incidents begin to plague her new family, and their house of calm is about to become one of suspicion and fear. Who can be trusted? Who is the target? Who is closing in?
