With the debut of Endangered Memories, the first novel in my upcoming young adult series, less than a month away, I wanted to take an opportunity to introduce some of the characters of my series. Weeks ago I introduced Carrie Green, and this week I’d like to introduce everyone to the main protagonist of the series, David Corbin.
David Corbin, once shy and a bit of an introvert, became a reluctant hero of sorts in the later years of junior high. When his sister, Cybil, was abducted by the criminal mastermind, Mr. Big, David flew into action, saving his sister and stopping Big’s attempt to murder a crowd of people.
That single event put David and Mr. Big at odds against each other for the rest of their lives.
With the taste of heroism still fresh on his tongue, David devoted his adolescent life to putting a stop to Mr. Big’s criminal actions. With the help of some of his classmates – Carrie Green, Veronica Amorou and Veronica’s brother, Sean – David managed to continually foil Mr. Big’s nefarious plans, eventually putting the crime boss away for good in the Galtaia Penitentiary years later.
During his escapades, David quickly and easily fell in love with Carrie Green. Despite the fact that Carrie fell for him in return, the two neglected to tell each other how they felt for fear of the consequences that would result. When David finally did decide to reveal his feelings for her during the shut down of the government initiated program known as The LZR Project, she fled without explanation to South Ryshard, not to be seen again.
At the beginning of Endangered Memories, David is in a somewhat tumultuous relationship with Amber Setterson. Ties with his sister are strained, his finances are in dire straits, and he wonders if life will ever be the same as it once was before Mr. Big was locked up and Carrie ran. A strange wedding invitation from Carrie changes all that though, awakening David’s feelings for her and pulling him back into the adventures he thought he left behind.
Look for more of David in Endangered Memories this coming June. You can also check out my introduction to Carrie Green at http://abrokenreality.blogspot.com/2011/05/introduction-to-carrie-green.html.
