Hi everyone, and thank you so much to Jessica for having me on her blog today!! I’m Tara Lain and I write the Beautiful Boys of Romance. Today, I’m celebrating the release of my new MMF ménage, Genetic Celebrity.
Some authors have role models for most of their main characters. They find pictures, videos and stories that help shape and inform the men and women in their books. I don’t. While I may try to find a picture of a model who resembles my characters, especially my heroes, after the fact, I don’t look for pictures before I create the character. It’s hard to say why. Often, my characters are extraordinary looking, like the supernaturally beautiful Killian Barth in Spell Cat, and I don’t want to place the limitations of reality on them before the book is done. BUT, I changed that pattern for one character in Genetic Celebrity.
Genetic Celebrity is an MMF ménage about a young business assistant/amateur chef who falls in love with a powerhouse modeling agent who is ten years older than he, and an androgynous street kid who the agent turns into a male supermodel. In this case, the supermodel was totally inspired by the nineteen year old phenomenon, Andrej Pejic, who is so androgynous that he walks in both male and female fashion shows for major designers. The 6’ 2” young man is in every way as beautiful as the most lovely woman, and yet there is a quality of masculinity about him that plays with the observers mind. My character, Shay Shaleen, is not transgender as Andrej is, but he is gender-bending such that people take him for a girl when he walks down the street. It was great fun imagining this beautiful, effeminate looking man with a very masculine point-of-view. I hope you enjoy Shay and my sincere thanks to the very inspiring Andrej.
