Leading Lady in “The Deception”
I really wanted to give Carrie Daniels a nice, girl-next-door quality. Judging by the comments I’m receiving from reviewers, I must have hit my mark.
A freelance photographer and former child model, Carrie’s entire world is about to come crumbling down. Three years earlier her mother suffered a debilitating stroke, and Carrie went from riches-to-rags once her mother’s insurance ran out. Her financial calamity, however, is only the beginning of her problems. Her significant other is about to dump her. Once that happens, she’ll be left homeless and vulnerable when her former mentor seizes the opportunity to exploit her for her own selfish gains.
Carrie experiences both sides of infidelity. Her significant other has been unfaithful to her. She’ll later meet Scott, a married man who presents himself to her single and available. Carrie leaves the relationship once she realizes things aren’t adding up, but by then it will be too late as Scott’s wife seeks revenge. Yet despite her troubles, Carrie remains resilient as she tries to make the best of what she can. She’s the kind of character you can root for’ sweet on the outside, but strong on the inside.
Carrie is a mostly fictitious character. I didn’t model her after anyone in particular, although I’ve put a little of myself into her. Photography is one of my life’s passions, and, in my younger days, I too dreamed of being a model.
