MFRW 52 Week Blog Hop, writing

Family/Friend Story Inspiration

Hi there! It’s week 16 in the MFRW Blog Hop. Today’s topic: Family, friends, and pets I’ve written into my books.

Family and friends are a great source of character quirks and personalities. A few friends of mine and quite a lot of family members are quirky or unique enough to inspire characters, but haven’t won a place in a book/series yet.  Here’s what I have for character inspiration.

My maternal granddad’s younger sisters are contemporaries with his older daughters, my mom included. These ladies are feisty, fun-loving, full of integrity, and they don’t take crap from anyone. They have inspired heroines in stories I’m writing in a sci-fi romance series.

In another series, a German Shepherd, my first ever dog,  that has crossed the rainbow bridge is a secondary character in another series. He is the inspiration for Pax, a companion of the main character that is traveling across the United States before she settles in a small town in Alabama.

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

A time to give thanks for all of our blessings. A time to spend with family and friends, sitting down to a wholesome and hearty homecooked meal and togetherness.
