#1LineWed – Characterization

Today’s theme for #1LineWed on Twitter, sponsored by RWA’s Kiss of Death chapter, is characterization. I just posted one example from WAR: Intrusion, the second book in my new romantic thriller series WAR. There will be another post later in the evening. Intrusion is still a work in progress, aka WIP, so there’s no guarantee these lines will stay in the book. 😉

If you’re not on Twitter, here’s what I posted last week when the theme was opening lines.


Lachlan watched as the pretty doctor answered the pounding at the clinic’s door. (WAR: Intrusion. Opening line: rough draft V1)


Lachlan held very still as the toddler plunked herself down in a patch of sunlight inches from his hiding place. (WAR: Intrusion. Opening line: rough draft V2)
