Eric Soares of Twenty-Five Years Ago Today

Character Crush 
Because Authors have crushes too!

1.   What attracts you to Eric and
why is he your character crush?

My character is Eric Soares from my
mystery/romantic suspense novel Twenty-Five Years Ago Today. He is my crush as
he is good looking and has that bad boy thing going for him where he is in a
band and wears a leather jacket, however, he is also the kind of guy you can
rely on.  He is a down to earth high
school teacher, is loyal to his family and friends, has a sense of humor, and
is romantic. You can’t ask for much more than that.

2.   Does Eric believe in love?

He does, especially when he gets to
know aspiring reporter Kris Langley, who is investigating the 25 year old
unsolved murder of Eric’s aunt. At first he denies the attraction between them,
as Eric is so irked that Kris is raising his grandmother’s hopes and stirring
up the past, but soon he realizes that her intentions are pure. The more he
gets to know her, the more he believes in love.
3.  What is the most enduring trait about Eric? Or maddening?

The most maddening trait is he is
stubborn and always thinks he’s right. 
This causes conflict when Eric first meets Kris as he thinks he’s got
her pegged as a shallow reporter using his family to further her career. His
most enduring trait, though, is that he is nurturing and takes care of his
loved ones. Kris has been going through a tough time and he wants to support
her.
4.  What challenges did Eric have
growing up?

Eric grew up in a family impacted by
tragedy. His aunt, Diana, was murdered when he was a toddler and it devastated
his mother and grandmother. As a result, they were always overprotective of him
and worried when he went out with friends. 

5.   What is the one thing Eric said he would never do, but did?

Eric said he would never help Kris with
her newspaper story, but he soon finds himself sleuthing along with her and
accompanying her to interview suspects from his aunt’s murder investigation.
6.   If Eric were doing a sexy
photo shoot, what would he wear?

Sunglasses, his leather bomber jacket
and a pair of jeans!

7.  What key childhood event occurred that
changed the way Eric sees the world?

The unsolved murder of his aunt made
him cynical and suspicious. Eric has a hard time trusting people, but once he
does, then he will always go to bat for that person. He grew up feeling
protective of his mother and grandmother, who had gone through so much hurt in
their lives. As a result, he is also protective of his friends and girlfriend.
