The Mysterious Midwife – Belinda from Water and Fire

Some characters stay with you forever – and some you wish you could forget. Some slowly grow on you as you get to know them.

As a reader, my favourite characters are those who do grow on me as their story progresses. I never expected it to be the same with my characters.

Now, I must make it clear that I don't construct my characters. I'm told there are authors who can play god and create people with whole personalities. I'm not one of them. My characters are their own people – from the day they invade my head to the day they leave. I haven't managed to get any of them to leave yet. I'm privileged to be able to view their lives through their heads as it happens and write it down – which is where my books come from.

So, when I say that a character puzzled me and I wasn't sure I liked her, it's the same as meeting a new, real person – for Belinda was a stranger to me at first. She seems so calm, collected and clear at first sight…but she's more complex than I'd realised, as she's hiding a lot under that composed exterior.

Once I knew her secrets, Belinda became one of my favourite female characters – and one I'd really love to give a happily ever after, if only she'll let me do it.

For a little more on Belinda – including background on her family and past that isn't included in Water and Fire – I've put together a character profile video, which you can view here:

Water and Fire is available from Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble, Diesel, Kobo and Smashwords.

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
