Redheads and Would-Be Witches with Kimberly Frost and W*n a Book

Today, please help me welcome fellow author, Kimberly Frost to Preternatura.  Kimberly has stopped by today as part of her virtual book tour to pose a very interesting question.  Kimberly is the author of Would-Be Witch, which is the first book of her Southern Witch series.
Kimberly Frost is the national bestselling author of the humorous Southern Witch series, which currently includes Would-Be Witch, Barely Bewitched, and Halfway Hexed. After her first release, Kimberly won the 2010 PEARL Award for best new paranormal author.  Her second series featured darker paranormal romantic suspense stories. These “Etherlin” books launched in November 2011 with the novella, “First Light”.  It appeared in the multi-author Christmas anthology, Tied With a Bow, reaching the extended New York Times Bestseller List.  The subsequent Etherlin novels included All That Bleeds, a featured Barnes & Noble “Must Read Romance”, and All That Falls, a Colorado Romance Writers’ Award of Excellence finalist. You can learn more about Kimberly by visiting her website, on Facebook, by following her on twitter or by visiting her blog. 
ABOUT WOULD-BE WITCH:  In the small town of Duvall, Texas, the only thing that causes more trouble than gossip is magic. The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets in the way of the supernatural are a few untimely visits from the long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket—an heirloom that happens to hold Edie’s soul—is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it’s time for Tammy to find her inner witch. After a few bad experiences with her magic, Tammy turns to the only one who can help: the very rich and highly magical Bryn Lyons. He might have all the answers, but the locket isn’t the only thing passed down in Tammy’s family. She also inherited a warning…to stay away from anyone named Lyons
And now, let’s hear from Kimberly…

Redhead Roundup
Kimberly Frost
Thanks so much for letting me visit with you today at Preteratura!
 
Red hair is often associated with a volatile temper. It’s considered bad luck in some countries and good luck in others. In pop culture, there are been a number of iconic redheads, many of whom were comediennes. Tammy Jo Trask, the main character in my Southern Witch series, has bright red hair and with her colorful turn of phrase and malfunctioning magic is often good for a laugh.
When considering redheads, I think about my favorites…
1.      Alyson Hannigan as Willow, the initially cute and cheerful witch on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2.      Christina Hendricks as Saffron on Firefly, a seemingly innocent girl who turns out to be a world—or universe—class con artist
3.      Debra Messing as Grace Adler, the romantically challenged slightly neurotic interior designer on Will & Grace
4.      Isla Fisher as Gloria Cleary –the wildly out-of-control sister in Wedding Crashers
Now I wonder…do you have a favorite redhead?

  1. Rachel morgan from the hollows series is teh first one i though of^^( now like Janhvi said cat does too and for volatile temper^^)

  2. In Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover books, those with red hair had the powers and were the rulers of Darkover. I have always wished for red hair.

  3. Oh yes, I wouldn’t have thought about Grace and Willow but great choice! I confess that the first person I have in Lind in Rachel Morgan because she is so awesome and fierce!

  4. Willow!! LOVE Buffy and Willow was such a quirky character:)

  5. I also love Willow!!! She was so sweet yet funny 🙂 Congrats to Kimberly on the new release and thanks for sharing!!!

  6. I’m a Willow fan. I’m also an NCIS fan…and we all know that Agent Gibbs has a thing for redheads, including the now-deceased Director Jenny Shepard.

  7. Their are a bunch of red heads I love in books. It’s become more popular to have a red headed heroine in UF and PNR these days. Some of my favorites are Rachel Morgan, Cat and of course Tammy Jo. I love the series and the new covers are really great. I can’t wait for the new book next year, been anxiously awaiting it.

  8. Favorite red head family are the Weasleys from Harry Potter. Loved your witch stories! Will have to check out your other series.

  9. I love all of the characters you mentioned! That is exactly how I see Christina Hendricks, even though she’s a lead in Mad Men. I also loved Rose McGowan as Paige in Charmed.
