Character Profile: Glenn

Features in: Muse , Harbour House

Age: 47

Occupation: Harvester Farm Hand

Glenn was a hard working man. No one could accuse him of being lazy. Providing for his family is of prime importance. His daughter, Susie, is all that matters but he also takes his comittments seriously and he committed himself to the Harvester farm back when Jacob Harvester was in control. He has worked the farm ever since he was a young man and has seen the old Harvester’s only child, Julia, grow up like an uncle. He saw the farm blossom. He watched it fail.

The Harvester farm became a brand under Dr Winslow.

 

The old Harvester became sick and it fell to Julia to decide its future. Glenn – like the rest of the farm hands – was always treated like family but decisions on the Harvester legacy was out of his depth.

Julia Harvester saw the farm hands as family.

 

Still, as difficult as things became an overbearing investor changed the world around them. Glenn remained strong in his commitment. As long as Susie had everything she needed it didn’t matter what he had to do. Even when the investor began to push them towards new jobs, well out-with their duties, Glenn carried on. It wasn’t glamorous. It wasn’t easy. It probably wasn’t legal but pride and family were at stake.

Harvester Farm is a vast land. When an artist runs out of places to run from a childhood trauma it will be his next stop. The full story is available to read HERE

Character Profile: Julia Harvester

Features in: MUSE , HARBOUR HOUSE

Age: Nineteen

Occupation: HARVESTER FARM Hand

She may have broad shoulders but the responsibility of the farm that fell on her after the old Harvester became ill was immense.

muse_harvesterlogo_vivikawidow
The family farm became a city wide brand.

Jacob Harvester didn’t want the farm life for his daughter. She could have been a doctor or a lawyer. She could have been anything but Julia gave it all up to protect her family legacy. Thankfully the Harvester brand has thrived in recent years. Now the meat and dairy trucks can be seen all over the Shady City.

Harvester Farm is a vast place with a lot of hidden gems.

Shackled to the farm by an over bearing investor as well as her loyalty to the farm hands Julia had lost all hope of ever escaping. That was until she met artist, David Finn. He saw something in her. She inspired him and in turn he inspired her. He helped her find the confidence she needed to break loose.

David Finn finds a new muse in the coy farm girl.

She is warm, friendly and has an attitude to life that seems a little naive. Be careful though. Underneath her seemingly innocent persona dwells a fire that could easily get out of control given the right motivation.

She is often found close to the man who offered her father new life, DR WINSLOW. She owes him everything. Not only did he save her father’s life but he also saved the farm and all those on it but when motives against her family legacy turn sour Julia’s loyalty will be tested to the limit.

Vulnerable? Unworldly? Or one to be watched closely?

Julia Harvester is a nice girl. She is kind, sweet and used to being posed in all the best positions. She is the perfect artist’s muse. Click HERE to read the full story.

Knock Before Entering: The Knock Knock Club

Location: Clifton Lane, Shanties.

Features in: KNOCK KNOCK; HARBOUR HOUSE 

In the poorest area of the Shady City, known as the SHANTIES, lies a club called the Knock, Knock Club. You will find it if you care to venture down Clifton Alley and are keen enough to knock on it’s door.

Reporter, Sam and his wife are welcomed to the club by manager, Dennis

There you will find a charming manager, DENNIS, to meet you. Entertainment is provided by some of the best talent the city has to offer, the KNOCK KNOCK girls are there to make you feel welcome and if you care to become a member the club will always have your back. You may even get an audience with the BOSS LADY herself.

Boss Lady, Tabitha, has a treat in store for reporter, Sam.

Since it’s opening by an old show girl known as The BARONESS and her partner AGNES, It has had its fair share of challenges. It has been a hiding place for criminals, raided by the COLDFORD CITY POLICE department and been burnt down in an attack that killed many of the dancer girls, staff and patrons. Despite this it has always managed to claw its way back up to continue as a feature in the south of the city. There is a war brewing and the HEADLINERS who own the club are leading the charge.

Sam and his wife, Theresa enjoy the entertainment Knock Knock has to offer.

Supplied by the MACK AND SONS distillery and invested into by the AUCTION HOUSE the club always has someone to call on when mischief is required.

It is a cabaret club by all measures but behind its closed doors there is something else going on. Enter journalist, SAM CRUSOW, to expose it for what it really is.

The Mayor has gone missing and the trail leads a reporter to the Knock Knock club. Complete season 1 is now available to read free here on vivikawidow.com or click below to download for Kindle.
