CHARACTER INSPIRATION: MOLLY MCKINNEY
#charactersketch #characterinspiration #mollymckinney
I looked long and hard for the right "Molly" face. I found one with Ella Hunt. Brown hair, brown eyes, with a look that honestly reminds me of so many girls I was friends with a long, long time ago. Honestly, she looks like a real person to me. Which I love.
Molly Elizabeth McKinney is the heroine of my upcoming Hearts of Arizona novel, A Lady's Heart of Gold.
She's the British half of our romantic couple, and our hero finds her ADORABLE. She's determined, stubborn, curious, and has an adventurous heart.
Did I mention she's a newspaper reporter?
In the late 1800's, women were starting to make a splash in the newspaper world. In London, a woman both owned and edited a large newspaper. Women's magazines were taking off. Nellie Bly was an established figure in the world of investigative reporting. So it stands to reason that a determined woman with literary skills would find a way into that profession.
In this book, you'll learn all about Molly. For one thing, she publishes under her initials, M.E. McKinney. That keeps both her editor and her readers from assuming a woman doesn't know what she's talking about.
I hope y'all enjoy this little sneak peek into what's ahead.
