Do you use real people like celebrities to inspire your fictional characters?
I know I do.
For instance, take the two hunks in my new story BEAR IT ALL Travis and John.
They are based on a *blush* porn star I love. I know I'm revealing a bit more than I should...he he he he he...Oh well!!! The actor I love goes by Travis on the Corbin Fisher website.
I even named the guy Travis because he was so real to me when I wrote it.
I refuse to comment on other ways this little firecracker inspired me, LOL I will leave that all to your vivid imagination.
My other hero, John is based on a very straight man you may have heard of before.
If you know him....I need no further explanation as to why I was having naughty fantasies about him starring in a book with sweet Travis.
After taking a look at my inspiration, I'm sure you can seee how these two men needed a story in my mind?
How could I ignore it?
I know the men look a bit different on my cover, but you gotta admit Fiona Jayde did a damn good job giving the reader a great idea of my two guys!
I would love to hear from other writers out there.
Do you use real people to base your characters on? Or are they all in your head?
BEAR IT ALL Now available from Decadent Publishing
Travis hired 1 Night Stand hoping for a hot encounter with a sexy older, hairy man, someone to make him feel safe and cherished, and John looks custom made to order.
After losing his partner three years ago, John needs to learn how to open his heart and live again. He thinks a one night stand in the Caribbean might be the answer, but when he sees the young, thin and much smaller Travis, he thinks the agency sent the wrong man.
Can desire overcome misunderstanding when these two bear it all? Or will both men walk away from exactly what they need and desire?
