The Paranormal Perceptions series was created to gather some of the most interesting authors that are using paranormal elements in their stories. Every author has their own perceptions and provides their own insight on all things paranormal, ranging from urban legends and paranormal research, to myths and inspirations. This week on the guest series is author of Influential Magic, author Deanna Chase(@writerdeanna).
Hello Monday’s Paranormal Perceptions. Thanks for having me. Today I have a couple of Character
Profiles for you from my newest release, Influential Magic. Character Profiles:
Influential Magic has two leading men. First up is Willow’s childhood friend, Talisen:
Name: Talisen Anders aka “Tal”
Height 6’ 4
Hair: Light Brown
Eyes: Deep forest green
Build: Tall, broad shouldered, narrow waist, lean corded muscles
Hometown: Eureka, CA
Occupation: Healer, researcher
Talisen Anders, aka Tal, was best friends with Beau, Willow’s brother until four years ago when Beau
was murdered in his mother’s lavender fields. Willow and Talisen have somewhat if a complicated
relationship. As kids, Talisen teased her relentlessly as a brother’s best friend is apt to do. But as they
got older, the teasing turned to relentless flirting. Willow, who’s been half in love with Tal her whole life,
never acted on her feelings, as Tal was an equal opportunity flirt, much to her chagrin.
But when Beau dies, the relationship Tal and Wil share turns deeper. They still flirt, but there’s an
unspoken understanding that Tal has taken Beau’s place in Willow’s life. Or so she thinks anyway. And
she won’t let anything mess that up, even her rampant hormones.
Talisen is a member of the fae, an outdoorsman, and gifted in healing. Back in Eureka, he spends most
of his time in the woods hiking, climbing, and collecting unusual stones. He’s an easy going guy with kind
eyes who smiles easily.
The other man in Willow’s life is David—her ex that so coldly dumped her via text message
Name: Davidson Laveaux aka “David”
Height 6’ 1
Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Midnight Blue
Build: Tall, broad shoulders, muscular, marbled physique.
Race: former human, newly turned vampire
Hometown: New Orleans, LA
Occupation: Unknown- works for Cryrique, the most powerful vampire corporation in New Orleans
Willow met David a little over a year ago when he was still human. He showed up at her shop, The
Fated Cupcake, and flashed his gorgeous midnight blue eyes at her and five minutes later he had a date.
Their relationship quickly turned into something more, something comfortable that had the ring of
forever to it. Until he dumped her right before she returned home to California for the summer.
As a vampire, David’s tall, dark, and brooding with lots of secrets. There’s a lot under the surface that
no one knows yet, a lot of secrets he’s forbidden to tell. But one thing’s clear, he cares about Willow,
despite the fact he pulled the worst move on the planet with that Dear Jane text.
Now he’s determined to keep Willow safe from a death threat even if means revealing his past, coming
clean about his childhood, and destroying any chance of reconciliation.
