Last week, I used Canva's A.I. text-to-image feature to make some character art for my upcoming Christian steampunk book Queen of the Skies. Here's a look at the main characters with a little bit of insight into each character.
Merritt is 22 years old, biracial (Black/White) and autistic. She has a unique view of the world and brings that perspective to the series. She was abandoned at birth by her mother and raised by her aunt, Marjorie Clarke.
Abe is 22 years old and the son of Douglas "Fletch" Fletcher who owns an airship repair business. Abe is an office manager at his father's company. Merritt and Abe went to high school together but didn't become friends. Circumstances bring them back into each other's lives.
Catherine is Merritt's mother. She left Merritt with her sister, Marjorie, in order to pursue stardom as a jazz singer. Catherine achieved her goal and became an international superstar at the cost of not telling anyone about her daughter.
James is Merritt's father, though he doesn't know that. He is a technology designer for a major corporation in New Amsterdam City. He has not seen Merritt's mother, Catherine, in twenty-three years.
