frankly TWISTED: the blog tour Week 9! (Meet Detective Frank Matthews)

29 Sep

In today’s guest blog post which happens to be the final one of this blog tour, readers will be able to delve into the character that the Tales of the 23rd Trilogy revolves around. This detective happens to be at the epicenter of both novels and is as intriguing as they come. This character happens to be none other than detective Frank Matthews. To learn more about him as well as his strong involvement within the plots of both frankly TWISTED and Tales of the 23rd Precinct, be sure to check out my post below.

Lastly, I would just like to say thank you to everyone that has been keeping up and following the frankly TWISTED blog tour. I really hope that you all enjoyed the background info that I’ve provided and hopefully it takes you into a deeper realm within  the 23rd Precinct universe. Week 9 is here on and again much thanks goes out to all that have tuned in.

Behind The Character:

And last but not LEAST, detective Frank Lucas Matthews!!! Man, this guy was a hell of a character and a joy to create. I don’t want to sound like an extreme fan boy, but this guy was without question my favorite character that I’ve ever written and probably will be for the rest of my writing career.

There are many things about Matthews that jumps out at me in terms of his uniqueness. For one, he’s cold. Included within the Frank Matthews package are: insensitivity, mystique, humor, aggression, anger, hate, intolerance, and despair.
More importantly, when writing and developing his characteristics over time, I wanted him to have relatability, I wanted him to be a man of many internal and external conflicts. I wanted him to be flawed. I wanted him to be someone that the average reader could possibly relate to. If not personally, then extensively through average people that they encounter throughout their daily lives.

For Matthews and all of my other characters, that’s all I’ve ever wanted. Better yet, that’s all I really want. Therefore, as time presses forward and the third and final book within the series is all that remains, I feel very sad to know that the character won’t be physically present for the final installation of the series. However, will he be spiritually present? You can definitely count on it.
