Time to continue the introductions to the cast of THE GAMBLERS with Wendy
(The book is already available for pre-order now )
THE GAMBLERS is the story of Ben Andrews a shy accountant who becomes obsessed with numbers and luck.
When he wins the Lottery and becomes rich overnight his life changes, but not necessarily in the ways he had thought. Who can he trust, now that he’s rich? How should Ben build his new life?
Wendy is a very attractive stewardess who Ben meets on an airplane. During their conversation over Duty Free sales he treats her with respect and generosity and uses his status as First Class passenger to shield her from her bossy superior.
She seems the stereotype of an overspending and materialistic girlie girl but she turns out to be more steady and conscientious than Ben would have thought.
I always pictured her a bit like Scarlett Johansen, who in many of her roles shows that physical attractiveness doesn’t protect you from getting hurt or being vulnerable. With shy Ben she is forced to take the initiative.
Ben is a shy guy, not good at reading people but good at maths and statistics.
He is polite and pleasant and at a dinner party you’d probably like to chat with him but longer conversations could turn into a dry and demanding chore. Not without his charms and good sides, Ben is an acquired taste.
