It’s time to check on my books’ impact on their readers. I could wind up, here, with a lot of egg on my face if hardly anybody responds to this question:
Who is your favorite Bell Mountain character?
I remember, when I was writing The Temple, how upset my wife and my editor were when they thought I’d killed off Chief Uduqu. I had no idea how much they liked him. I thought of Sir Walter Scott, whose printer rebelled when Scott (in Ivanhoe) killed off Athelstane. He had to write a new scene bringing the old duffer back to life. Happily, Uduqu wasn’t dead: he’d just fallen asleep on the battlefield after tremendous exertions.
Anyway, so who’s your favorite character in these books? There are a couple hundred to choose from!
I can’t guess who will get the most votes… although I do have one pretty strong suspicion.

Helki the Rod for the win! A master of nature and a formidable combatant for what is right, good, and honorable. A great role model for boys and girls alike.
Ah, our first answer! Let’s see who wins.
Wyatt for sure.
I knew he’d get votes.
It’s gotta Martis for me, I liked his character as soon as I started reading the books!
Three votes, three different characters so far…
I think it’s Martis, the former assassin for me.
It’s hard for me to say which is my favorite character, as they are all special to me in some way.
I’m very glad to hear from you, Katheleen! It’s been a while. Please give my best to Kerolyn and the rest of your family.
Sorry for being absent, Mr. Lee Duigon. I’m really happy to talk to you again. Kerolyn and my parents give their best to you, too.
