I’ve been tagged by Hunter Frost to participate with a group of very talented writers in the Meet the Character Blog Hop.
Hunter lost a bet at a blackjack table and begrudgingly traded temperate Southern California for the sweltering heat of Las Vegas. There she resides with an extremely tolerant boyfriend and two cats, Latte and Java. When she’s not dreaming of returning to coastal living, Hunter works on her MA thesis in British history and at her government day job. In order to appease her muse, she writes the kind of fiction that keeps her sane. She adores romance in all forms, but prefers her stories with two heroes that find their happily-ever-after with each other.
Hunter is the author of An Angel in Eyeliner (Beaten Track Publishing – part of Boughs of Evergreen: A Holiday Anthology due out November 2014).
All Mitch wants for Christmas is a quiet holiday free from grief. Patching up the face of the target of a mugging in the back alley of his bar seems to throw that wish right out into the cold Chicago night. But the tatted, pierced, and skinny-jean wearing Keller Graham is fearless and proves to be more than a pair of icy blue eyes lined in black. Keller may be a thief, but Mitch never expected him to steal his lonely heart.

Now it’s time to introduce you to Ryan Forsyth one of the MC’s of my book A Little Christmas Magic, also part of Boughs of Evergreen – A Holiday Anthology (Beaten Track Publishing, due out November 2014)
Who is Ryan?
Ryan is a Sports Physical Therapist and ex-varsity wrestler. He’s the type of guy who plans out his life and reaches all the goals he’s laid out for himself. He’s in his mid-twenties and hangs out with his buddies, Boone Ainsworth and Greg Hayes whom he’s known since junior high. Ryan’s so deep in the closet, he doesn’t have a clue that he is.
Where does A Little Christmas Magic take place?
It takes place around Silicon Valley, California. A few scenes take place at Ryan’s apartment, Tai’s family home and Boone’s duplex.
What won’t Ryan talk about?
Ryan doesn’t like talking about his feelings. He’s more of a hands-on, doer kind of guy and he doesn’t do emotions well. In fact, anything that causes him to think too hard about Boone, tends to give him migraines.
What’s Ryan’s Goal?
Well, that depends at what point in the story you’re asking about. Ryan has many goals, but the goals change throughout the story. Also the goals Ryan thinks are important, aren’t necessarily the ones he wants in the long run, but he needs to figure that out.
What’s His Problem?
Again, that depends. At various points in the story, Ryan has different problems. There are problems that happen that aren’t really problems, but they are too him because he can’t figure out why he’s upset. There are his fears he needs to face. And then there’s Boone. Those two end up creating some major problems between them that need settling.

Her contribution to Boughs of Evergreen – A Holiday Anthology (November 2014) is The Bard and His Boyfriend
Seth is a member of an ancient clan of druids that have existed for over 5,000 years. The rituals they do at the changing of the seasons keep the very fabric of reality from unraveling. But as he goes home for the Winter Solstice, all he can think about is the huge fight he had with his boyfriend before he left school for the holiday break. Much to Seth’s surprise, Alejandro follows him home to apologize. When Seth tells him the truth about his heritage, Alejandro has to make a decision. Seth and Alejandro must work together to make sure that wherever they are spending the holidays – they are home with each other.
