There's A Book

My absolute favorite character from the Hero’s Guide/League of Princes series by Christopher Healy by far is Duncan. This adorable, slightly goofy, sometimes not-so bright but always kind prince is hard not to fall in love with. When I found out that my character feature during The Hero’s Guide Heroes Guide (Now With Villains!) Blog Tour was going to be Duncan I was over the moon!

Quote: “One time, I thought I was scratching my own head, but I realized I couldn’t have been, because I had a chicken leg in each of my hands. So I didn’t know who could have been scratching my head. It turned out there was just a ferret under my hat. Its name was Long John Fuzzy. The ferret, not my hat.”
