The FictionPress home of Jack and Colette Messer

Who are Jack and Colette Messer?

They are an early-mid 20th century mystery solving couple (akin to Nick and Nora Charles) of my own creation, who, along with their children Conrad 'Connie' Messer and Evie Rose Messer, get involved in all sorts of adventures and mysteries

Jack is a man who along with being a WWI veteran, did his time in several branches of law enforcement. He's been everything from a police detective, to a P.I, Prohibition Agent and Bureau of Investigation Agent. Due to a traumatic past he's very much a paragon of the law, believing firmly in helping people and seeing that justice is done.

Colette grew up the daughter of a wealthy family before circumstances forced her out into the wide world. Since then she's worked in a rich man's house as a maid and nanny, as a switchboard operator, a lawyer's secretary, and as a nurse in France in WWI where she met Jack. The two met several times before she finally came to work as his secretary, the two falling in love shortly afterwards. She's remarkably stubborn but motherly, not allowing anything to stop her from helping those who need it.

Evie is stubborn like her mother, but with a bit of a boy problem. She's fiercely independent, and dead set on being one of the first female police detectives.Once she has her mind set on something, nothing can stop her.

Connie is quiet, withdrawn, and shy...until someone insults his sister, Then the parts of his father that were a boxer come out in him as he'd fight anyone to defend her, or her honor. In that way he's a ticking timebomb, waiting silently for someone to set him off.
