My laptop died today. While I've been trying to pull my novels off of it (snark) I've had time on my hands.
I've got another character for Novel #3.
I've had my antagonist - a female politician, perky, plotting and Palen-esque.
Today I've got my Male Lead. Leo, an overgrown tomcat from norther Michigan. He rides a Harley Screaming Eagle, flies colors (USMC, American flag, and a slogan "Jesus hates a pussy"), chews Bic pens and needs knee replacement surgery.
His first line will be: "My fraking luck, three tours in Iraq and I get nailed by a broad on a cell phone!"
I like this guy already.
