Vivien on Jack:
When I first started thinking about JACK STONE, my model for his character was based on UK actor Sean Bean (star of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones). I had just watched a telemovie where Sean Bean played a character named Richard Sharpe. Sharpe is the creation of Bernard Cornwell and is the hero of his Napoleonic war books. I imagined a younger Sean Bean as the template for JACK STONE and then actually had him written as a WW1 fighter pilot. After 15,000 words the story wasn't working so I moved my character to present day, transported him to America, and called him Jack!
That's how JACK STONE first came to life when I sat down to start writing WILD JUSTICE.
I have never before told anyone that Sean Bean was the man I visualised, because I wanted everyone to picture Jack as their perfect hero rather than be influenced by me.
