Oh boy, today’s Top Ten Tuesday from Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl, is Character Whose Jobs I Wish I Had. And let me tell you, there are quite a few jobs, I am sure you will all agree, we all wish we could do. How about taking on the challenge of one of these jobs:
- PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR — like Sarah Paretsky’s long suffering character, V.I. Warshawski or Emma Viskic’s deaf character, Caleb Zelic. And Vaseem Khan’s MC, Insp. Ashwin Chopra (Rtd.).
- FBI AGENT — like Brigid Quinn in Becky Masterman’s series featuring a tough as nails 60+ MC.
- RAILROAD POLICE SPECIAL AGENT — like the ex-army vet, Sydney Rose Parnell, in Barbara Nickless’s brilliant series of books.
- FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGIST — like Temperance Brennan in Kathy Reich’s long running series, that everyone knows as Bones from the TV series.
- PROFESSOR OF SYMBOLOGY — like Dan Brown’s infamous prof, Robert Langdon, he of The Da Vinci Code fame.
- BOUNTY HUNTER — like the tenacious and tough Lori Anderson from Steph Broadribb’s books.
- LAWYER — like hotshot Eddie Flynn from Steve Cavanagh’s fantastic legal thriller series.
- POLICE INVESTIGATOR — like the melancholy Arkady Renko, one of my fav characters from Martin Cruz Smith’s fab series of books.
- MASTER SLEUTH — like Alan Bradley’s 11 year-old super sleuth, Flavia de Luce, who’s an utter delight.
- SPY — like any character in a thrillingly-good John Le Carre or Bernard Samson from the superb Len Deighton series of books.
And you, what career or jobs would you grab the chance at doing, if only in your dream landscape?
