Good vs. Evil
by Ty Langston
Everyone has it in their tales. You can’t have good without bad or bad without their being some sort of good at the finish line.
I love bad boys. I love writing about them, reading about them or watching them in a film. Those sexy and careless men not only make us swoon, but also transport us into worlds or in situations where we just wish in our own lives we could do or say just a tenth of what they do.
No one is truly good; there are always shades of gray. I try at least for my heroes or heroines to be as imperfect as possible with some clear distinctions made as you read my books. As you read, I want the reader to wonder, ok, how did that happen and why did it happen? Also, what are you going to do to fix it?
So, who are you favorite good and bad characters in novels and why?
