I’ve been occasionally posting collages to introduce readers to the characters in my new novel, Something Worth Saving (on sale date December 18, 2018). In this graphic, you’ll learn a little about Victoria Anderson, the middle child of the Anderson family.
Victoria is 16 years old, and a tough cookie. She’s strong willed; Victoria doesn’t let her older brother Kevin boss her around, and she’s protective of her younger brother Charlie. Victoria has a new boyfriend named Aidan, and Lily (my cat narrator) doesn’t like him very much. She’s worried that Aidan might be bullying Charlie.
So…on to the graphic!
Coffee: Victoria likes to think of herself as a little more mature than other kids her age, which might include drinking coffee both for the caffeine, and also to help her look more sophisticated.
Victoria favors heavy eye make-up and black nail polish. Lily respects Victoria’s personal style, although she suspects it in part may be a desire for attention, especially since Victoria’s dad got kicked out of the house.
The beach: The Andersons live in northern New England, right down the road from a beach where Victoria spends many summer days—except for those weeks in late July when the greenhead flies are out, and they’re all reluctantly trapped indoors.
If you read the book, I hope you enjoy this character. Victoria is a boss! I enjoyed writing her scenes.
