While on my recent Blog Tour for Charlie’s Hero, I shared a Character Bio for Josh Campbell. In case you missed it, here’s a bit about Josh.
Meet Josh Campbell
Name: Josh Campbell
Physical Characteristics: 6’, athletic build, dark blond hair, brown eyes, olive skin, five o’clock shadow
Family: Josh’s closest relative is his brother, Andrew.
Best Friend: Josh spends a lot of time hanging out with his friends from work, fellow paramedics and firefighters (lucky Josh J)
Personality: Friendly and caring. Very loyal. A little shy outside of work.
Loves: Keeping fit and hiking. Helping others. Falls in love with Charlie Matthews.
Heartache: Josh struggles with coming out because he fears losing the love of his brother, the one person who’s been a constant in his life, and made so many sacrifices for him.
Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It’s love at first sight, and a romance begins.
But Josh’s reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him, puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh’s concerns, he can’t help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.
It’s not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn’t come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie’s hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that he doesn’t need his parents to be part of a family.
