In Which Evan Discusses Mike

Hi, everyone! I’m participating in a “Meet the character” blog hop this week. I was invited by my friend Anne Lange, who I met during NaNoWriMo the year I wrote DEADLY CHEMISTRY.

Anne posted last week about her character Jack, and tagged me to post about one of my characters. If you’ve read DEADLY CHEMISTRY, you’ve met Evan—he’s one of the hero’s brothers. He’s also in the process of getting his own book, but it’s not quite there yet. So I thought it might be nice for him to talk a little bit about DEADLY CHEMISTRY. Then maybe when Evan’s book comes out, we’ll invite Mike back to talk about Evan.

Evan, would you like to introduce yourself?

*Tall man—broad-shouldered but lean, with oddly perfect hair—enters, wearing lab coat, khaki pants and a blue polo shirt (tucked in, of course)*

I suppose so.

Hello, I’m Dr. Evan Adams. I have Ph.D.s in Biochemistry and Ecology, and a professor of Biology at Tucker University.

Thank you, Teri, for inviting me to speak today, although I’m much more comfortable discussing my frogs than family issues.

I know, but Mike wouldn’t talk about what’s going on with him. Can you tell us?

*rolls eyes*

Apparently, he is under the impression that he can redeem himself and save the world from drug dealers if he crawls around in a maintenance uniform and flirts with female faculty members.

Is it working?

I’m not sure if he’s having luck with the drug dealers or not, but he seems to have caught the interest of one particularly attractive professor.

No kidding. Do you think things will work out between them?


If Michael can get out of his own way and forgive himself for the mistakes he thinks he’s made. I’m the screw up in the family. As soon as he realizes that, he’s got a shot at this Happily Ever After business they discuss in the English Department. Unfortunately, I don’t think his character arc will include learning to remember to do laundry before he runs out of clean underwear.

Um, okay! Thanks, Evan!

You’re welcome. Apparently, you can read the first chapter and get buy links to find out what happens to the drug dealers, the attractive professor, my brother, a family of possums, and a neurotic cat in DEADLY CHEMISTRY here.

If anyone has any questions for Evan, I’m sure he’ll be here the rest of the week, and he’ll tell you almost anything. I have ways of making him talk.

I’m tagging a couple of my friends to carry on–I would love to hear about CATHY PERKINS project (could it be the newly released CYPHER?) and JESSICA LEMMON (MILLIONAIRES, anyone?)

  1. Hi Teri! Hi Evan. Wow. You’re a smart guy. A Ph.D.s in Biochemistry and Ecology. You’re a professor of Biology. And yet, you still referred to yourself as the family screw up. I think there’s a lot more to you that what meets the eye, Evan. I’m looking forward to find out. (hurry and write his story Teri! LOL ). Frogs. Hmmm. I’m told frogs turn into princes. Are you prince behind all those degrees, Evan. I bet you are. 🙂

    1. Thank you for your reply, Anne. No, that’s a myth perpetuated by the fairy tale industry (and the Humanities Department, again). Tadpoles metamorphose into frogs, but frogs remain frogs. My PhUCR frogs, however, are interesting because their skin contains a pigment that–
      That’s good, Evan, thanks. And yes, Anne, there is a little more below Evan’s surface. I hope.
