Women in Toronto: My Female Characters...

A lot has been said about women in Toronto: beautiful, educated, classy, well-rounded, and ethnically diverse. Allow me to introduce you to the women of my Urban Toronto Tales novel collection.

01) "Delia" is a hot girl, tall and pretty, her body is off the hook, her hair is long, healthy and natural, and she is every man's fantasy. She is known for being a party girl. People see her around town and she looks like she has it made: she's the centre of attention everywhere she goes from the club to the mall. Despite the perceived perfection, however, Delia really just wants to be respected, appreciated, and loved...

02) "Kimmy" is average looking but she's dressed to impress no matter where she goes. She has a tough time keeping relationships, but will do and say anything to get what she wants out of life. A tough girl, Kimmy doesn't take b*llshit from anyone, and doesn't trust a soul. She loves to drink, dance, and keep up with the latest gossip in the city. If something hype is going on, you can be sure Kimmy is somehow in the mix...

03) "Abigail" is a humble girl, short, voluptuous, and thoughtful. A photographer, Abigail loves to see new things, capture new images, and spends a lot of time alone. She doesn't have many girlfriends and usually keeps to herself, but a part of her is curious about the world that exists outside her suburban neighbourhood. She wants to have fun, and live life, but just needs the right opportunity to break out of her shell...

04) "Kiziah" is a dancer, graceful and quiet, beautiful and humble. She worked hard to complete graduate school, and wants to be respected for her talent and ambition...and not just her looks. Kiziah has a kind heart, a delicate spirit, and is usually judged and dismissed by those who don't take the time to know her...

You can read about the relationship drama that ensues with Delia or Kimmy in my book VIDEO LIGHT or about Abigail or Kiziah in REQUEST TO REWIND.

The books of the Urban Toronto Tales collection strive to represent Toronto men and women as accurately as possible. The experiences, the conversation, and the lifestyle. To check them out, visit www.staceymarierobinson.com/books.html.

Men in Toronto: My Male Characters...


Whether they live in the westend, the east, downtown or north of the city...the 905ers, the original Scarborough 'mandem' , immigrants or Canadian-born...the street hustling rudebwoys to the educated call centre workers...they have been leaving their unique stamp on the city of Toronto 'from time'.

The male characters in my Urban Toronto Tales novel collection represent a cross-section of brothers that can be found across the city.

01) "Ryan" is a good boy. Very studious throughout high school, completed university, bought his own car and condo, and managed to still enjoy the city's party scene without neglecting his books or career. Ryan doesn't have too many bredrens, but always has a serious girlfriend and is loyal to her. But sometimes he is too serious, too by-the-book, and doesn't know how to lighten up and let things flow...

02) "Kirk" - is a proud thug with the clothes, the car, and the cash flow to prove it. Everyone knows his face, his reputation, and he feels like he's on top of the world. A notorious gunman that gets respected and envied by everyone in his circle; Kirk dates the hottest women and is convinced that he'll be unstoppable forever...

03) "Karl" is a playboy. He spends his days at the gym and his nights at the club. He's a promoter: he knows everyone and everyone knows him. Good looking, a smooth talker, charming and driven, Karl is convinced that he has life all figured out and expects nothing less than the admiration of everyone who crosses his path...

04) "Gavin" is a humble superstar. He works hard, he has money, respect and ambition, but he is careful not to flaunt it. Gavin is talented and successful, polite and cautious, but at his core he is still searching for more in life than he has already been given. Despite his possessions and achievements, he is still looking for the right woman who will understand him...

05) "Mike" is a businses man. Educated, hardworking and dedicated. He's married, he's got a nice car, big house, and a baby on the way. He's all about money and creating a life for his family that looks good and has real value.

You can read about Ryan, Kirk or Mike in VIDEO LIGHT, and Karl or Gavin in REQUEST TO REWIND. For more info visit www.staceymarierobinson.com/books.html.
