Meet My Main Character: Annabeth

Nadine Lewington is who I would pick to play Annabeth. She's been my muse for the character all along.

Since I was tagged twice in this hop (by Malcolm Noble and J.F. Ridgley – have a look at their main characters, please), I’m introducing two main characters. Today, I’m please to introduce you to Annabeth, the main character of my new romantic comedy, He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not. (Don’t forget to visit my main blog to meet Guinevere, the main character of my historical fantasy trilogy.)

What is the name of your character? Is she fictional or a historic person?

Annabeth Coe. She’s a fictional character.

When and where is the story set?

Modern-day Chicago.

What should we know about Annabeth?

Annabeth is a die-hard romantic who believes in soul mates. In fact, she’s been writing letters to hers since she was a teenager.  Now in her mid-thirties, she’s still waiting for “the one.” She’s a successful copywriter at a PR firm and has many close friends, but longs to find someone to spend her life with.  She wants to fall in love, but was deeply hurt by her first love and so doesn’t trust easily.

What is the main conflict? What messes up her life?

When Annabeth meets a handsome man on her birthday but he doesn’t ask her out, she vows to do everything she can in the next year to meet her soul mate.  This leads to many awkward and hilarious dating incidents, culminating in a relationship that just might last and the unexpected reappearance of her handsome birthday boy. Right when she thinks she’s finally found the right guy, her first love comes crashing back into her life, turning her world on its head and forcing her to face all of her old insecurities – along with her unresolved feelings for him.

What is the personal goal of the character?

She wants to find love and get married. She’s ready – her career is in order, she’s fulfilled in all other ways, but the guy just hasn’t appeared yet. Since he hasn’t found her, she’s determined to find him.

When can we expect He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not to be published?

I don’t know. It’s going to my agent in a week or two. Hopefully soon! I’ll be sure to post here when I know.

Who’s next in this blog hop?

This hop started with historical fiction writers, but I’m breaking the mold and tapping all my fellow Spellbound Scribes. If they don’t have something else already planned for their next posts, maybe they’ll introduce us to their main characters!

Do you have any questions about Annabeth or her story? If so, please ask away in the comments!
