Meet the Characters of the Young, Hot and Talented Series
I’ve seen so many comments on Facebook about people not liking serial novels. I for one, like writing them. I take pride in developing the worlds in which my characters live. And most of the time I end up developing secondary characters that my audience fall in love with. My current M/M book, ‘Do Me Right,’ is book 4 in the Young, Hot and Talented Series released by Siren Publishing. I won’t lie. Book one did start out to be a stand-alone book, but I and my fans fell in love with the delightful three members of The Kerry pop group…Frankie Kerry, Jonas Kerry and Gerard Tyler. I set them in my home town of New Orleans so I could introduce the world to restaurants, foods and the people that make this place so special. What I really like about this series is that the young men not only like the music they’re performing but has a passion for oldies for goodies too. Each book has its own play list.
The main characters in the series are actually violinist and singer-songwriter Frankie Kerry and his rich boyfriend Adam Montgomery. Even though the two of them got together in book one, ‘A Lover’s Concerto,’ their story still isn’t finished yet. Frankie was turning eighteen when the story began, he’s twenty years old now, but he still has some growing to do.
In book 2, ‘A Little Cajun Soul’ I introduced you to the drummer in the group, Gerard Tyler who isn’t a blood relative of Frankie or Jonas, but fit perfectly in the group. His boy friend Luke cheats on him and even though he’s small and Cajun does not mean he’s a pushover. Gerard immediately leaves Luke and meets Giovanni Bassett, a French fashion designer in New York and fall in love with him.
I really loved writing book 3 ‘Spoiled Rotten’ featuring the older Kerry brother, Jonas who plays the piano, guitar and is also a songwriter. Jonas has a lot of issues, to include having asthma and not taking good care of himself. Like Gerard, Jonas finds out that his boyfriend is cheating on him. And even though he looks and acts like a prima donna, Jonas doesn’t waste time in getting his ex-lover out of his life. He meets and falls for his rock and roll idol Brenton Tramayne, whose long blond hair and rocking body makes Jonas want to live and love again.
The Kerrys are moving into the big time by book 4, ‘Do Me Right.’ They are on a European tour with several of the other acts from Albertson Entertainment and it’s time for Gerard’s mortal enemy bad boy R&B singer Noel Charles to shine. Once again Luke cheats on another one of his lovers. Noel isn’t a kid, is highly intelligent and knows what he wants out of life. He goes through managers as often as he changes his underwear, but he has a feeling his new manager Edward Green is not going to be a pushover.
I’m already working on book 5. All I can say is someone is going to get what he deserves when he meets his match in the Orient.
I’ve introduced a lot of characters in the first four books and the story lines keep writing themselves in my head. All though I try to give each character his own individual story it’s impossible not to mention some of the others from previous stories because they are all on tour together and their relationships are still developing.
