Part 1 of the Interviewed by My Characters series

Part 1 of the Interviewed by My Characters series   @Melissa_Foster One of my characters just surprised the hell out of me. I said, outloud, “Really?

A comparison

            The April 20/27, 2012 Issue #1203/1204 of Entertainment Weekly has, on page 90, an interview with Nicholas Sparks where they asked him about his five favorite romance movies. I thought it might be fun to compare his thoughts on these films with how my own characters and storylines from the Existence …

Forbes Fictional 15

            So I saw this article about the Forbes Fictional 15 richest characters. Naturally I thought about my own characters and where they would fall onto this list.

W is for William Warehime (Existence series character)

            When William first met Xavier’s sister Adrielle, she was dressed in black leather spiked boots that were laced up to her thighs, a tiny black leather skirt, and a low scooped purple top. She bore no resemblance to any upper crust socialite or noblewoman, not that he had met very …

V is for Granny Vine (Existence series character)

            It was mid-March, 1944. Though I had just turned 21, I had already been married for five years. (Back then, if a boy got a girl “into trouble,” marriage was the only real option.) My mother was watching our son so that Frank and I could spend the evening together …
