Man Monday … Mark Ruffalo


When you need inspiration for a dark, brooding lover, you can’t go past Mark Ruffalo. Lover in Waiting has a sub-plot involving Jack’s twin sister, Virginia,  and a suitor of her own. Meet the inspiration of my scholar, Bernard Hallam. Like him?

We often need a face for inspiration. For my first story, Lover in Waiting, I had a hazy image of my hero. Watching the 2007 Tv adaptation of Persuasion solidified the remaining details. How perfect is Rupert?



“Insulting people works for me. Perhaps you could try that?”  The cold-hearted marquess.
