Princess Diana & A character look
9/1/2007 9:23:53 AM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

Before I talk about my character look, I thought I'd remember Princess Diana for a bit.

I just want to say yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of Princess Diana. I was 12 or 13 when she married Prince Charles and I remember thinking how cool is that? She married a Prince and she's totally cool. She's a Kindergarten teacher! But the marriage was complicated and complex and within ten years it had broken down. Still, I admired Diana. Especially when she admitted to the buliema. It made her so...human. To me, I easily identified with her.

I was in stationed in Hungary on a 90 day deployment to Operation Joint Guard on 31 August 1997. In fact, I remember being in the chow hall where they had a TV on and that's how I heard about her death. I can't begin to describe the saddness I felt, I just felt like I'd lost a friend. My heart went out to her sons. Today, Princes William & Harry are fine men and I think she'd be proud of them. Anyway, I just wanted remember Diana today. She touched a place in my heart few public figures do.


Now, I wanted to continue my look at characters, so I thought I'd offer up a couple of insights and tidbits to my character, Corporal Sharon Cates, from my novel, "Destination: Berlin."

Sharon Cates has high expectations of herself. She joined the army not because she got an enlistment bonus or because of the Army G.I. Bill, she joined so she could come to know that part of her father's life that he wouldn't talk about. It's a reason she won't divulge to just anyone.

Sharon's pretty much a model soldier. She excels in her fitness tests and does well on the board. She's received a couple of awards. Because of her performance, she's promoted and given a chance to go to Berlin to participate on the Berlin Orientation Tour.

Her personal life is a mess since she's neglected it. Her boyfriend can't stand her professional focus and it eventually drives a wedge in their relationship. Sharon maybe a good soldier, but she has a non-exisistant private life.

On the way to Berlin, the duty train derails and Sharon discovers she had top secret material on her that the Stasi and KGB are willing to kill her for. This is truly a test of her military mettle as she makes her way across East Germany, hunted by the enemy.

Destination:Berlin is an action/adventure story with a female soldier in the lead role. If you read it, I hope you find Sharon Cates interesting.
