MEET BECKY WILLIAMS
Enough about RC, let’s talk about
Becky Williams. She is one of four
viewpoint characters in
The Gathering: End’s Beginning.
Becky is the mother in the Williams
family and the strongest character
in the story.
What is the name of your character?
Is she fictional or a historic person?
I am the family historian for both sides of
my family. Since the names of my
ancestors are already stuck inside my head
I decided to use them for character names
in the book. Although Becky Williams is
the name of a real person the character is wholly made up.
When and where is the story set?
The first book takes place in the United States. It all takes place in the near future. And by that I mean I worked so that anyone reading the story within the next 15 years will think it could happen soon.
What should we know about her?
Although she comes across as fearless and undaunted, Becky is really acting the way she believes everyone expects her to act. Inside, she is not all that sure that she can manage the family by herself. Don’t worry, I have faith that she will prevail.
What is the main conflict? What messes up her life?
While her husband is away, Becky has to run the household by herself. That is a tough proposition under normal circumstances, but she has to do it while dealing with food riots, increased crime and violence in her neighborhood, and a mega-storm that hits the city making all of the other problems even worse.
What is the personal goal of the character?
Becky wants to keep her family safe. And she wants her husband to return home. For the most part, The Gathering: End’s Beginning is about normal people facing the harrowing
events leading to the end of the world.
When can we expect the book to be published?
Actually, The Gathering: End’s Beginning was published in January of this year. It is
available on Amazon, Barnes& Noble, and from Cedar Fort.
I am nominating Brock Booher and Laura Walker to join the tour and tell us all about their characters.
