Strengths and weaknesses

Regina: Loved to wear her cowboy boots all the time. Even with her evening gowns.
Your inspiration for the character
Regina was her little bit of me, though I wasn’t sure I had any part of me left to pour into a character. But she really was her own woman. Her story of becoming a princess inspired me. I imagined what I would do if I were in the same situation!
Tanner was every dark side of the men I’ve known in my life, and the good side. But like Regina, Tanner was his own man, walking onto the page and after a rewrite or two, presented himself.
Background to the story
This story is the second in the Royal Wedding Series and was inspired by the idea of a girl finding out she was a long lost princess.
