Penmore Press has received two more terrific contributions to our Authors on Characters section. Here are Leah Devlin describing the "notorious" ancestors of her contemporary protagonist in the Chesapeake Tugboat Murder Series, and Lou Aguilar gives a profile of a smooth operator about to be leveled by a dog, in his political satire Jake for Mayor, forthcoming Summer 2016.
Lou Aguilar: A Dog's Tale: "Ken Miller was always a golden boy. He had looks, brains and popularity, with a commensurate arrogance, no less toward women. Straight out of Northwestern University; where he majored in political science and practically minored in partying; he went into a suitable career for his manipulative charm, advertising."
Leah Devlin, Notorious Relatives: "Wait … the story’s missing something. Giles and the other pyrates are feeling amorous. Drum roll please … enter women. Ferocious women, indentured servants-prisoners from the slums of Dublin and London, flee from a brutish foreman on a Virginia tobacco plantation and join the crew of the Raven."
