I’m in the final 20 percent or so home stretch of my second novel Nae’body’s Hero and thought I’d give you a wee look at the characters. I love when they do this at the start of Star Wars novels, they call it their “Dramatis Personae”.
If it’s good enough for Lucas/Walt, It’s good enough for me:
Rob Hamilton, Gifted Scotsman and hero.
Arif Ali, English-Pakistani and double agent.
Kim Baker, Lead agent in CTA and badass.
Frank and Mary McCallum, Rob’s foster-parents.
Cara Hamilton, Rob’s twin sister and school teacher.
Mike O’Donnell, Homeland Security.
Mr Bendini, Mike’s boss.
Jack Foley, CTA agent.
Azam and Mimi Ali, Arif’s parents.
Latif Ali, Arif’s cousin.
Zulifkar Raheem, Handsome terrorist. Member of a fledgling Al Qaeda.
Frank McCallum Jr, Government worker.
Tom Kinsella, Rob’s childhood best friend.
Paddy Carroll, Infant
Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda leader and architect of 911 attack.
Nae’body’s Hero, coming early 2013.
