Hi guys! My name is Louise Gornall, and I’m here to tell you a little bit about my best guy, Luke, he’s the male main character in my young adult contemporary novel, Under Rose-Tainted Skies.
Luke is bae, you can't have him! No, for reals, Luke is funny, charming, incredibly charismatic, and he just moved in next door to Norah. I guess we can share him.
Luke’s world is very different to Norah’s. He has a social life for starters, and he’s attracted the attention of the hottest girl in school -- which, isn't Norah. Though, attention isn't something Luke thrives off. He first meets Norah under...unusual circumstances, and is immediately intrigued by the quirky chick living beyond the boxwood bush.
Luke is laid back. He’s loaded with enthusiasm and ideas. He plans ahead, thinks of the future. He dreams of things that Norah could never do. Luke’s character actually underwent a huge facelift during edits, it wasn't that we changed him so much as made his role bigger. Turns out, he had a lot to add, once the secrets in his backstory slowly started to emerge.
Under Rose Tainted Skies went on sale on the 7th of July, so you can find it in all good book shops!
