J is for John

John. He is one of my oldest characters. Oh, not in years, he is fairly young in years. However, he was one of the first characters I ever invented.

At eleven, I decided I would write my own version of Robin Hood where he didn't steal (I was a kid, okay?). My Mom wisely suggested I write my own story with my own characters. While the first story I wrote was derivative of Robin Hood in pretty much every aspect (Thank you Errol Flynn's Robin Hood). Yet, through writing that story, I fell in love with writing stories.

Years later, as I was getting ready to write the second book in the Tales of Taelis series, I decided to revisit that old story. I lifted the character from my first story, including his name, and dropped him into Brothers and Betrayal with a cool new title: The Archer.

John has been through a lot in his past, but he has used that pain to help others. Here are a few fun facts about this hero.
  • He has a tendency to be standing up on a rock
  • He is very good at archery
  • He takes enjoyment in witty banter with his arch enemy Lord Notly
  • He has a secret helper who helps fund his band
