Anne Mateer's debut novel has just released so enjoy meeting Rebekah and learn how the story came about.
Over to you, Anne:~
Brief physical description
Rebekah is 19 years old, of average height and medium build. Her light brown hair is often unruly and her brown eyes often flash with fire. She is a sturdy farm girl, but prefers stylish, modern things. She is full of energy.
I’ve never gone into a book with a physical picture of my protagonist, but the funny thing is that everyone who has read the book and seen my book cover says, “That’s exactly Rebekah!” The model they used is almost a dead ringer for Megan Follows in her Anne of Avonlea role, though with more brownish than reddish hair.
Strengths and weaknesses
Quirk (if any)
I don’t think Rebekah has any truly definable quirks, though other characters in the story do!
Your inspiration for the character
Although my initial inspiration for Rebekah was one of my great-grandmothers, Rebekah really didn’t turn out anything like her. My characters tend to be conglomerations of many people and looking at Rebekah now, I believe she is an interesting blend of my daughter and me.
Background to the story
Thanks for sharing, Anne ~ I'm looking forward to reading your story!
