Character Interview

Beverley: What’s your name?

Silver: My name is Silver Adams

Beverley: Where did you grow up?

Silver: I grew up in London, England.

Beverley: During what time period does your story take place?

Silver: It is a contemporary (2018) story.

Beverley: What’s your story/back story? Why would someone come up with a story about you?

Silver: I was abandoned as a toddler in London. I have no idea who my biological parents are. Lucky for me, I was adopted into a  close-knit multi-cultural family. I have a story about finding love with an exciting fireman in Baltimore City who has issues with fire. Together we have to find a missing painting that the Nazis claimed was destroyed during World War Two.

Beverley: What’s your goal in this story?

Silver: My goal as a private investigator and security consultant is to find the painting and get paid. I have employees that are depending on me to keep my security business operating.

Beverley: What conflicts are you facing?

Silver: I’m attracted to a man who lives in Baltimore, Maryland, and I live in England. I sometimes have to lie to get the information I need, and he hates anyone who lies. Besides, he wants me to find out who killed his half-brother. I find missing and stolen objects. I don’t find killers.

Beverley: Do you have a plan for resolving them?

Silver: The man I’m falling for is going to help me find the painting and together we will search for his half-brother’s killer.

Beverley: Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you?

Silver: My family and friends are quirky and unique. It is interesting to see how a Baltimore City fireman adjusts to London and my crazy relatives.
