Facts You May Not Know about Marta
Writing requires authors to create character profiles which include the basics (height, age, hair color, etc.) but also includes more personal details that reveal character idiosyncrasies. Here are a few facts you may not know about Marta Selbryth, main character in 84 Ribbons and When the Music Stops -Dance On, books 1 and 2 of my ballet trilogy.
Marta’s middle name is Annette.
Marta is mildly dyslexic. As an adult she’s self-conscious about her limited education.
Marta’s favorite colors are blue and red. She likes to wear soft, flowing fabrics.
Even though Marta’s father died when she was seven, he influenced her adult life. She continues to sit and rock, reminiscent of doing that at home in his chair, whenever she needs to work through problems. She avoids conflict whenever possible.
