OK… I did NOT see this one coming. Seriously, when I wrote the part, I had a fuzzy sort of picture in my head but – when I went looking for a picture for the character bio – this picture jumped out at me, and the moment I saw it, I KNEW she was Queen Shiara!
Introducing… Her Majesty,
Queen Shiara Alessa Whynn-Fortine
Shiara Whynn never wanted to be Queen. She never even dreamed of being a Princess – but when she married Prince Devron, it was only a matter of time…
And now she must guide the Prince in making the most important decision he will ever make in his life, and she must do it… alone.
Queen Shiara’s story might have had a Cinderella beginning but the fairy tale did not last nearly long enough.
She grew up in the streets of a war-torn city with no ties to the throne and no illusions that she would ever see it… much less be crowned Queen of the very people she had lived among for twenty-three years.
There are quite a few secrets lurking beneath the calm, quiet exterior of Auralius’ mourning Queen but… you will have to read the series (including the bonus novella JC already has planned) to figure them all out.
In the meantime — here are a few basic stats for you to relish:
Age – 46
Hair – brown
Eyes – brown
Height – 5’7″
Build – slim, striking
Personal Details – Calm, quiet, sad, a devoted mother, grieving widow, beloved Queen
My awesome launch team picked Queen Shiara to go next. Aren’t they fantastic!
