Today on Novels On The Run on my stop of the Blog Tour I have a guest post from Tiffany, chatting about Lockwood, who I LOVED in Naturals. He is a great character. 

Want more Lockwood!!

And a couple giveaways. Rafflecopter is for USA and one digital copy is for Australian residents.

Here is my review of CHOSEN ONES and NATURALS


I thought I would have a little fun today by introducing you to one of the newest characters to enter the series--- Lockwood. Using a character analysis questionnaire created by the well-known Proust, I hope to shed some light on a character that readers, and myself, seem to really dig in this second installment.

So, without further fanfare, let’s meet Lockwood:

• What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Lockwood:  Teaching Tess how to milk a dang cow. Seriously. The girl didn't know what she was doing. I really thought it was a lost cause. I mean, she didn't even know that before you grab on anyone's...well, you know, you need to at least say good morning.

• What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Lockwood:  Being myself. Not worrying about what others think. Living to see another day isn't so bad either.

• What is your favorite occupation?

Lockwood:  How about my only one? Here in the community, we are assigned jobs based on our abilities. I deal mostly with the livestock.

• What is your most treasured possession?

Lockwood:  My wit. Oh, and I have managed to hold onto some novels over the years. I always ask Eric and the boys to bring any that they find while doing supply runs out in the cities.

• What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Lockwood:  Haven't met her yet. And I don't see the point in wasting my time on those maybe girls. I'll know when I meet her. I'm a only love once sort of soul. Very old-fashioned.

• What is your favorite journey?

Lockwood:  Well, the only ones I've been on have been with Tess. Through the woods. Filled with danger. And weird stuff. So, by default...yeah, none of them.

• What is your most marked characteristic?

Lockwood:  Easy-going attitude.

• What is it that you most dislike?

Lockwood:  Small-minded people.

• What is your greatest fear?

Lockwood:  That the people of the community will limit my freedoms out of fear...that they will turn into another council.

About Tiffany Truitt: 

Tiffany Truitt was born in Peoria, Illinois. A self-proclaimed Navy brat, Tiffany spent most of her childhood living in Virginia, but don’t call her a Southerner. She also spent a few years living in Cuba. Since her time on the island of one McDonalds and Banana Rats (don’t ask), she has been obsessed with traveling. Tiffany recently added China to her list of travels (hello inspiration for a new book).

Besides traveling, Tiffany has always been an avid reader. Tiffany spent most of her high school and college career as a literary snob. She refused to read anything considered “low brow” or outside the “classics.”

Tiffany began teaching middle school in 2006. Her students introduced her to the wide, wonderful world of Young Adult literature. Today, Tiffany embraces popular Young Adult literature and uses it in her classroom. Tiffany is proud to call herself an educator and Young Adult author.


Ripped away from those she loves most, Tess is heartbroken as her small band of travelers reaches the Isolationist camp in the mysterious and barren Middlelands. Desperate to be reunited with James, the forbidden chosen one who stole her heart, she wants nothing to do with the rough Isolationists, who are without allegiance in the war between the Westerners and Easterners. But having their protection, especially for someone as powerful as Tess, may come at a cost.

When James returns, Tess’s world once again feels complete—until she discovers her sister, Louisa, has taken up her old post at Templeton, the dangerous chosen ones training center and the site of Tess’s loss of innocence. Tess will do anything to protect her loved ones—but will the price be more than she can give?

This second book in Tiffany Truitt’s dystopian series is a thought-provoking, thrilling story that asks who the true enemy really is—the chosen ones who are different, or the naturals…who are just like us.
