I think all authors have favorites among the characters they've created. I know I do, and it just so happens that one of my favorites is a secondary character who plays a supporting role throughout the entire Finch's Crossing series.
Kyle Oswald, oh how I love you!
Kyle is introduced in the first book in the series. He is a hopeless romantic, cries tears of joy at the drop of a hat, and has a penchant for inspirational sayings such as “Live, Love, Laugh” and “Bloom where you’re planted.” He had a rough childhood, and these sayings bring him comfort and joy, so you’ll find them throughout his apartment on pillows and plaques. Oddly enough, this eternal optimist falls for the town Grinch, Meg Overly, who has her hands full running her parents’ business breeding German Shepherds for law enforcement. What I love most about Kyle is that he doesn’t let anything deter him from winning the heart of the woman he loves. And believe me, there is plenty to deter him. Meg is grouchy, opinionated to a fault, and standoffish. But Kyle knows there is a softer side to her, because he saw it when he wasn’t supposed to.
Here's a featured scene that illuminates the relationship between Meg and Kyle. I hope you enjoy it! (BTW, things do get better for poor Kyle!)
