Who is Michael Hawkins?

Michael is a nearly 300-year-old vampire. That’s the simple answer. But in all honesty, he’s so much more than that. A lover, a fighter, a swordsman, a runner, a soldier: the list of attributes for him is extensive. It would be a disservice to him to call him just a ‘vampire’ and nothing more. The book explores his past, his doubts, his fears, and his ability to love and protect the woman he has fallen for. 

Physically speaking, this is how Michael appears to our main character: “He was a man. Emphasis on the ‘man’ part. Not a boy or a guy, but a tall, perfectly proportioned MAN. He looked to be at least six foot four, broad shoulders under the jacket of his suit, his stance casual, and perhaps my age? Early thirties? His long, straight hair was the color of fresh coffee, and it was pulled back in a ponytail secured with a strand of leather. His eyes were bright grey, like silver, and his face was both strong and soft in all the right places. I stared with my mouth watering at this incredible specimen of masculinity, feeling immensely insecure and aroused all at the same time…” 

I was intentionally ambiguous about his ethnicity or skin color to avoid isolating anyone from finding this man attractive. I want everyone to see him with their own eyes, with their own pre-conceived notions about what a vampire should look like. I only provided some subtle attributes to encourage the reader to view some of the man I had envisioned Michael to be.

How do you see Michael? Are you able to picture him?
