Didn’t we go to the same high school/church/laundrymat/gas station way back when? Didn’t you base Story/Character X on me?
No! Okay, we might have gone to school or church together. But my characters are a figment of my oh-so creative imagination and are never, ever based on anyone I know.
Amazingly enough, many, many people ask me this. But come one people, I don’t know your sex life and I don’t WANT to know your sex life. I would never, ever think enough about your sex life to include you in a book. Ha!
Sometimes I steal a name because it’s a good name. Sometimes your name gets used because I forgot it was your name. Sometimes, if you’re a fun reader like Patti and Morgan and Barb, I’ll turn you into hookers in a book (The Secret Life Of Bryan) and we all get a good laugh!
