Meet the Best Friend from Bloodstone Castle by Mirella Patzer


The Bloodstone Castle virtual blog tour moves on today and we get to learn about the best friend. Mirella Patzer shares information about the best friend and how he helps the heroine...

1 - Tell us a bit about your book.

Bloodstone Castle is the story of one woman, torn between love and duty, caught in a fight to the death between two men determined to possess her and the ancient Roman treasure buried in the caverns beneath her castle.

2 - Tell us about the best friend - gender, age, appearance, how they came to be with the hero or heroine and anything else we need to know about them.

Massimo Baronno is Morena’s best friend. He is almost like a brother to her. When Massimo was a child, his parents were murdered and Morena’s father took him and raised him.

3 - Who does the "best friend" help in the book?

Massimo is always there to help Morena and he also helps those he thinks are good like Amoro Dragone.

4 - Does the best friend have a specific purpose in the book?

Massimo wishes to pay back Morena and her father for their many kindnesses. So he always has Morena’s best interests at heart.

5 - How does your hero or heroine feel about the best friend?

Morena loves and trusts Massimo. He is like a brother to her and has aways protected her.

6 - How would your hero or heroine handle their problems or difficulties with the best friend?

Like any brother and sister, I believe they would quarrel.

7 - Are there problems between the best friend and your main characters?

No, but Massimo sees clearly what Morena is blind to and he tries his best to help her even if she doesn’t think she needs his help.

8 - Do you see the best friend ever having their own story?

Yes, one day I hope to write a story with Massimo as my hero. But I have three major novels to finish prior to that. So I can’t say for sure, but the thought of writing his story has occurred to me.

9 - Was the best friend inspired by anyone you know?

Yes, Massimo was inspired by my own younger brother for he is also kind and generous and would look after my best interests. .

10 - Is there anything else about the best friend that we need to know? Feel free to share.

For now, Massimo played a minor role, but he is intriguing and although he is on the back burner for now, he just might make another appearance one day.

Hello and greetings from Whitefish Montana. Hubby and I left today for a weeks visit to Montana and Idaho. It's lovely writing from poolside. The day is sunny and about 75 degrees - so not too hot. I'll be checking in regularly tomorrow! I'm looking forward to chatting.
