I felt it was a good time to post some information about my secondary character, Dwayne Brown. He's Shannon's sidekick, mentor, and antagonist all rolled into one. He's a flamboyant, street-smart, wise-cracking fella who looks a little like this dude,

and he will definitely kick some butt when the occasion calls for it. He has some shortcomings, however, and one of those is he is in love with the detective in charge of the murder investigation. Ah. Love.

Here are a few stats on Dwayne in his own words :

Character's favorite color: Maroon, baby. Is there any other color?
Character's least favorite color: Brown.
Why? It sorta clashes, you know what I'm sayin'?
Favorite Music: Urban hip- maybe a little rappy rap... I'm not too picky.
Least favorite Music: That wild stuff Shannon listens to. Ugh. *shivers*
Why? WHY? It's weird, man. Pipes, and tambourines, and flutes. Damn that woman loves flutes.
Food: Chicken. Definitely. Fried, broiled, barbequed, and with dumplings, please.
Literature: Hell, the only literature I own is a 1998 issue of People. Does that count?
Expressions: You know what I'm sayin' is most likely the one you're lookin' for but I've been known to be rather expressive in other ways.
Favorite book: Um. Let me get back to you on that. *giggle*
Why? Well, I ain't exactly got a library handy, right? I ain't exactly no scholar, or nothin'. *Sigh.* I cannot believe I just told you that.
Expletives: I am a big user of the eff word. Sorry. It's just that Shannon gets me into these situations and ... oops. Here she comes.
Mode of transportation: My car, a 1968 Ford Mustang. Red. And do not ask for the keys, Shannon Wallace, you can't have them. *she just glares at him*
Daredevil or cautious? Oh yeah, daredevil all the way. I hang out with her don't I? *points to Shannon*
Same when alone? *laughs* only my hairdresser knows, honey. And believe me, he ain't tellin'.

Hi, Kim! I can't wait to meet Dwayne "in person" when your new book arrives! He sounds like a real "character!" (LOL!) Have a wonderful Memorial Day.
