Interview with Pamela

What characteristics make up a good protagonist?
The same characteristics that make up any character work for a good protagonist...they must be identifiable by the reader, have good qualities to balance out the not-so-nice ones and of course be open and willing to allow their best qualities show/develop by the end of the story.

Who is your favorite fictional protagonist from a novel you have not written?
Boy that's a tough one! I absolutely love the protagonists in Nora Roberts and Julie Lessman novels - guess if I HAD to pick a favorite it would be Gray in Nora's Born in Ice (book 2 in the Born In trilogy).


How did you come up with the idea for your protagonist?
An avid romance reader, I knew the type of characters I truly enjoyed....tough yet tender males and strong yet feminine females - so these traits came naturally to my own writing.

Pamela's book, Tempered Hearts, is available here!

Hi Pam! Glad to know you. Would you believe I have never read a Nora Roberts book? I think it's about time I did that. Which one do you suggest I start with?
Glad to have you and happy Clashing!!

Hi Pam,
An interesting interview. I like the idea of having the good qualities come out by the end of the book. It sounds like lots of good conflict going on.

Hi April!

ANY Nora Roberts book is worth your time but my favorite (and I've read almost everything LOL) is the Born In trilogy - in fact, I won't part with these, but when they wear out, purchase new copies LOL!

Hi Gail! I love a strong romance in every story and believe with all my heart in HEA!

Thanks ladies for commenting.

Hi Pam! Welcome to the COTT family. =) It's wonderful getting to know you through your interview answers. I've heard so many people praise Nora Roberts but haven't read any of her books myself--ack! Maybe I'll look into that Born series. Thanks!

It seems I'll have to add you to my reading list, Pam, and maybe check out Nora Roberts too. She must be doing something right---as you obviously are too.

Well Michelle, it's a rare romance reader who doesn't like Nora - although I have met a couple. Don't understand their reasoning but hey - each to his/her own...right? LOL!

Thanks for the compliment Christine! I hope you enjoy what you read - mine and/or Nora's ;-)

Thanks Ladies for commenting.
