Real Life Inspiration for Denny ~ Thoughtless Series by S.C. Stephens

by S.C. Stephens
Series:
Genres: Contemporary Romance

Are any of the characters drawn from real life family or friends – yourself maybe? Why did you decide to make Denny Australian and did you speak to any Australians for help with his sayings or mannerisms?

S.C. Stephens:  “Haha, no, no real life family & friends inspirations, although, Kiera and I do share a lot of the same quirks. Denny is Australian because he’s based on an Australian actor that I had a crush on at the time (Craig Horner, such a cutie). I popped him into my fantasy with Kellan, and Thoughtless was the result. I didn’t know any Australians at the time, although, I do now! I just went more with his character than his nationality. I knew some sayings, then googled others. I hope I did him justice!”  (Courtesy of http://www.ourbookclub.net.au)

Here’s a fun fact for you to nibble on….in the very first draft of Thoughtless, Denny and Kellan’s names were reversed.  “I switched them because Denny was better for an Australian’s name, and Kellan was…well, let’s face it, a hotter sounding name.”  S.C.
