Please give a warm welcome to Nathan Hawthorne the hero from Truth Deeper Than Logic today as we sit down and see what makes him tick.
Q: So tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?
I was perhaps a little excessive in my grief over Daniel's death...I believe Lee was captivated by the urban legends of black panthers stalking men in American forests.
Q: What was it that drew you to your mate?
He's was just too cute...running through the woods...I know, that's not nice, but well, I was in panther form and he just smelled right.
Q: A little naughty fun, where was the wildest place you seduced your partner?
Oh, let's see...that time on the floor of the cabin...
Q: Boxers, briefs or Commando on a man?
Definitely commando...in fact, I really prefer naked in general. You humans with your preference for clothing don't know what you're missing.
Q: If your partner wants to seduce you, what's one sure fire trick he/she can play?
That damn, beautiful, sexy little toy...
Q: What is the one place on your partner's body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?
His ears...I just breathe across them and he quivers in my arms...
Q: What was one of the most embarrassing thing your author did to you in Truth Deeper Than Logic?
Me? Well, strolling into a board room all set to wage property war only to discover that my opponent was the man I'd been lusting after for months....
Q: Anything else you would like to add?
Yes. I never ate anyone. Those rumors are completely false. It's the wilderness. Humans are clumsy. Just because they go into the woods and never return doesn't mean I ate them.
Thank you for joining us on 'Meet the Character' day here at Breathless Press Blog.
Thank you for letting me set the record straight.
His lover's death filled Nate Hawthorn with rage. From that time were born legends of bloodthirsty cats and killer bears, of humans entering the woods and never leaving.
Legend exaggerated, and he had calmed down and accepted the transiency of human life. Fragile, defenseless, but curious, brave, and loving. He'd allowed their presence in his valley in the beginning because they intrigued him with their resourceful cleverness in turning their fragile bodies into a strength rather than the weakness he'd taken them for.
When Daniel died, he'd chosen to live among them for simple reasons. He felt closer to his lover walking among his descendents. He took a warped pride in the growth and the progress of the town Daniel had started, in the prosperity of Daniel's people even as their growth and progress had overtaken his woods. Perhaps some fatalistic part of him believed that the circle of life would one day claim him, had known that they would one day kill him.
When Seth Greenwood, a junior architect with a local firm who dreamed of bigger things, pinned his hopes for career advancement on a project that required the use of Nate's land, Nate realized how much he wanted to live. And how very much he wanted Seth.
