Hi, folks! I’ve got something a little bit different for you today because I thought I’d introduce you to James Leipfold, the protagonist of my upcoming detective novel, Driven. I don’t always put a huge amount of effort into planning out individual characters but in this case, it seemed like the right thing to do.
Because of that, I created a character sheet and even found a few representative photos from a modelling agency, and I thought that the time was right to share it. You can meet James Leipfold below or click here to support my Thunderclap, which will basically help me to raise awareness of the book on launch day. Thanks as always for your support!

Bio: James is relatively short for a guy, and is somewhat stocky – he has short legs and a big chest, blue eyes and spiky ginger hair, with a receding hairline. He has worry lines on his forehead and is almost always frowning – he rarely smiles and almost never laughs. He’s usually clean shaven, unless he’s fallen off the wagon, and he wears a three-piece suit with no tie and his top button pen.
He has a dark past full of secrets, which show in his haunted expression. After serving a stint in jail for vehicular manslaughter due to accidentally killing a child whilst driving home from the pub, he lost his job on the police force and became a private investigation. He also swore off the booze, though he did it with outside help. He’s also ex-army, though he doesn’t like to talk about it.
