How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I Spy A Demon – Keta Diablo
When I sat down to write I Spy A Demon, I knew I wanted a hero and heroine who knew one another
in their childhoods and continued that relationship into adulthood. Of course, you have to come
up with the angst they face, an angst that is big enough to separate them at some time.
I also wanted mystery to enter into the plot, for instance, why were twins, Cecily and Calder,
raised by the Frost family? What happened to their parents? The reader doesn't get the answer to
that question until midway through the book. The hero comes from a family with plenty of secrets, secrets
our heroine is determined to uncover.
Characters are born from a seed of an idea and then, hopefully, develop and grow as the story moves along.
With my characters in I Spy A Demon, things are not always as they appear, characters present to the
reader one way of life and really live an entirely different life. A big part of the story is the
heroine's quest to separate fiction from fact, peel back the layers of the people she's loved most
of her life. I think sometimes the most intriguing characters are those who advance a hidden agenda or
have a chameleon-like persona that keeps the reader guessing until the final reveal.
"We therefore commit Calder Sizemore's body to the ground, earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust…."
The cloying scents of damp earth and lilies spiraled up Cecily's nose. Overhead, a pitiless sun bore down on the mourners gathered around her brother's casket—familiar faces she’d known forever, lived with and loved. She fought back the bile rising in her throat and prayed the minister would come to the end of the service before her knees buckled.
To her left, stood Mae Frost, her mother's best friend and the woman who had raised her and Calder after their parents died. As if Mae could read her thoughts, the woman squeezed her hand, an unspoken sign of moral support and unconditional love. She would expect nothing less from Mae, and had received nothing less for the past twenty years. If Mae's husband, Gus, were here, she would receive the same outpouring of love from him. In essence, Gus was in attendance, not above the ground but below. And now Calder would rest beside the man through all eternity.
"And so, shall we ever be with the Lord."
Dear God, when will he say 'Amen?
She stared at the burgundy coffin with its hideous spray of red roses, yellow lilies and white orchids while a thousand questions tore through her brain. How could she go on without Calder, the other half of her soul, her womb mate, the one person who had always been there through the highs and lows of her life? What was he doing in St. Louis when he died and who was with him at the end? She had to know what kind of an accident had taken his life.
That's the word Mae used—accident—when she called her in Minnesota to deliver the dreadful news. 'We've booked a morning flight to Des Moines,' she'd said. 'The ticket is in your name and waiting for you at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, Delta Airlines ticket counter.' Numb with shock and grief, Cecily had pressed Mae for details but the woman circumvented her question. Why should she be surprised? The entire Frost family held Masters’ Degrees when it came to dodging and ducking topics they didn’t wish to discuss. ‘We’ll be waiting for you at the airport when you arrive,” she’d said and then ended their conversation.
This time, she wouldn't allow them to circumvent her questions. She'd find out how her brother really died, even if it was her last act in life.
