I know, I know, November is still a whole month away.
BUT OCTOBER IS NOW UPON US!!
For us NaNoWriMo writers, that means we have to keep on prepping our novels! EEK!
For this particular NaNo writer, I’m going to try and get my outline organized coherently enough so that I at least have a vague idea of where I’m going with this story.
I’m also going to introduce the protagonists of Into My Life, a short snippet about their life, and also the synopsis.
Into My Life // Synopsis
When his ex-girlfriend, Ariel Shaw, goes missing, security guard Connor Matthews is immediately suspected by her husband Zach, despite evidence to the contrary.
Bored of looking for stolen bikes, newbie PI Kelly Hayes immediately jumps at the chance to find Ariel Shaw, who has been missing for a week.
As Kelly and her partner dig deeper and reveal their findings, Connor soon realizes he’ll be facing the past he never wanted to remember.
Connor Reid Matthews // Age: 22
The male protagonist of this series as a whole (save for the prequel), Connor was born out of wedlock to a young college student and her fiancé . He was placed into foster care when he was five. After turning eighteen, he decided to hitchhike to Washington state, but ended up staying in Chicago instead. He works as a security guard for a (fictional) private company.
The disappearance of his ex-girlfriend, Ariel Shaw, is what leads him to meet Kelly.
Kelly Mae Hayes // Age: 22
The female protagonist of this series as a whole (save for the prequel), Kelly was born the youngest of six children to a lawyer and bank accountant. When she was thirteen, her parents died, and she went to live with her maternal grandparents in Chicago. She works as a private detective alongside fellow PI Alexander Michaels, who acts as her surrogate brother.
Her third case, the disappearance of Ariel Shaw, is what leads her to meet Connor.
I may end up doing intros for the secondary characters-which would be Ariel and her husband, Zach, later. The antagonists though…they’re kind of supposed to be hidden, so there’s not gonna be any intro posts about them.
Tell me your thoughts below!
(Psst…If you’d like to read more about Connor & Kelly before the books even come out, just hop over to the Kennor tag! Angst and fluff await, muahaha!!)
