Pets, Friends and Family InCluded?
What I really like to do is incorporate memories and family stories, to preserve them long after we’re gone. I mention something someone in my family is known for saying, or a favorite recipe or possibly something happens that the character ponders on, simply because I don’t get it either. For example, in Sweet Thing Brewing, Veronica wonders why the waitress brought glasses of water to the table, if no one drinks them, then it’s just something else for the staff to clean. I think about that all the time! It seems so wasteful!
Few real life people know I write, but the ones who have read my works said they really liked how I included family history and stories into the overall project.
