Character shift?

It's odd, and a bit interesting, that the more I work with Eve in the Egyptian novel, the more her focus shifts to her father. True, he was the sun around which her world revolved, and true, the reality of the facts indicates that his death ended a portion of her life, but I find it interesting the direction the words are pulling me. I think at this point, the thirty-plus pages of this novel are split between a primary focus on Eve and Lord Carnarvon, or "Pups" as she called him.

It's also odd to write about, as my tense changes from present (in the context of my novel) to past (in the context of the historical facts). I am confusing myself!
