I love shoes! (Yes the ones below are my shoes and feet)
More specifically, heels. High heels. They are my little indulgence. However, until I make my millions, I won’t be able to indulge quite the way I’d love to.
The red sole signature of Christian Louboutin would be my number one choice to splurge on. And as I live near Bath, Manolo Blahnik should be my second. Now, my personal favourites would be the more understated, simple shoes. The classics. That would be my sensible head talking. Like the Fifi below.
But there are others that I’ve found and have fallen in love with. Would I ever wear them? Probably not. But aren’t they beautifully decadent. View my Pinterest board to see more.
What ones are your favourite?
This is the biggest part of myself that I’ve given to my character Izzy. She goes on a journey of sexual awakening in my books – The Evermore series – And she does it with fabulous shoes on her feet. She wears very specific heels at pivotal scenes throughout the book and you can take a peak here… You’ll get to meet Izzy in More, the first in the series later this year.
I thought it was time to introduce you to the main characters from my debut novel More, part of The Evermore Series.
Isabel Fields and Sebastian York have been with me for a long time now and they almost seem like real people (I’m not mad I promise!). I know how they end, but I haven’t written it all yet. That is part of the journey I’m still on.
I’ve kept a visual inspiration for ‘More’ and Izzy and Seb on Pinterest. But the looks are just part of it. What are Izzy’s fears? What drives Seb? Will Izzy find the courage she needs? These are just some of the questions that came out during my writing and as I try and perfect, build and edit my craft, I have realised that these characters are full of the complexities that each of us have.
It’s the characters with depth that we come to love in the stories that we read. Whatever genre you choose, we all have them, a favourite character. They have body and soul and we live with them through the pages we read, we cry with them and our hearts beat with them.
My small hope is that for a few readers out there, Seb and/or Izzy will become one of your favourite characters and that you’ll live their journey with them.
