Harry from Bella and Gerard


Image copied from internet


     I haven't gotten the chance to "sit down and talk to" Harry yet.  He is one of the characters in Bella and Gerard.  I know that he works down by the docks in New York, and that his name is Harry.  He is a widower, and he lost his daughter a couple years ago.  It is hard to build a full impression of someone's character on such a short acquaintance, but I have a sense that he is a pretty good man.  And I will try to set aside some time in the near future to sit down and explore this character.  He hasn't been introduced in the book yet, but he will be very soon.
     In my defense (as an explanation of why I have not fully figured out Harry's history and character yet), I have spent some time over the last week-and-a-half studying Gerard again.  I have to make sure I understand his character and am not misrepresenting him as I write.  That is one of the responsibilities of authors, after all.
