What does your character’s name mean to her?
Vivienne’s name has got its root in the Latin vivus – which means “alive.” That was the name of the Lady of the Lake – the mistress of Merlin from the Arthurian saga. It’s a smart and sexy name for a Parisian woman.
It’s January second. Where is your character today and what is she doing?
It’s the middle of winter, a holiday, Wednesday, the best time for a Gemini woman to sit in her silk pajamas near the window curled with a good book, while it snows heavily outside. She is reading Pippi Longstocking for the thirteenth time. She is still in the holiday mood, a little bit tired from staying late, and all the rapture and dramatic pathos of New Year’s Eve, but welcoming the New Year with freshness. It will be an entirely different year, she has listed her resolutions, naughty and nice, and this is the season for a restart. Every time she leaves the book, she begins thinking of Ashton Rowan, the man, who is like an encyclopedia to her.
If your character could change one physical detail about herself, what would it be?

Describe your character’s hairstyle in detail. Why did she choose it? How much does she care about it?
It’s hard to speak of a hairstyle, concerning Vivienne. She wears her hair long so that the man she loves is able to caress her locks spilled on the pillow after a night of passion. But then her hair’s natural state makes her look like a forest nymph most of the time. She is so “Me – Tarzan, you – Jane” in her appearance. Her hair does not succumb to any comb. It’s most enticing when her hair flies all around her head when she is dancing in front of the ventilator.
What is your character’s favorite physical activity?
