Many people who have read my debut novel, Reaching Out For You, either really love Sophia or hate her.
As an author, I portrayed Sophia to be an indecisive, scared, timid and broken girl. She has been through so much in her life; the death of her mom, losing her best friends, depending on alcohol and then having an abusive boyfriend. Sophia wasn't sure she was meant to be happy. But when Adam comes back in her life, she's scared. She didn't want to lose him again and ran away. While I was writing Reaching Out For You, I too wanted to smack and shake her! I was happy to read that many readers didn't like her and didn't understand her while some do. With Sophia's demons, that's what also made her stronger.
Thanks for reading my thoughts for today. Cheers and happy reading!
