Thirteen Things That Happened in My Life This Week

I got a new job
I got a raise
And then I got another raise
I had my cards read
I taught class…well I spent 15 minutes going over pivot tables and 45 minutes chatting
I had to go to a staff meeting
I was made to feel more guilty that I already was
I smiled
I got one decent snuggle from Cooper
I paid $2.29 a gallon for gas
I found a new dish I like
I procrastinated just a little bit less
I made a commitment to cleaning up the bathroom every night before bed. So far so good.

Thirteen situations I have put my characters through


1. Dagney Warren – held hostage and shot while 8 ½ months pregnant.
2. Addison James – husband murdered helping out a friend
3. Carrington James-Anderwall – husband killed in their home by a jealous lover…a jealous male lover.
4. David Castadoras – watched his brother kill a police officer and has kept the secret for over 30 years
5. Hadley McKoy – her fiancĂ© said someone else’s name during their wedding vows
6. Michael Vincent – brother put in prison for murdering a drug dealer and cop – he didn’t do it.
7. Addison James - beaten and raped at a crime scene by a cop.
8. Emma Connor – boating accident that left her with hand tremors – she’s a surgeon
9. Hector Rado – murdered by cop after it was discovered he killed her husband
10. Hadley McKoy – watched her new husband go back to his presumed dead ex
11. Huxley Wells – will steal evidence that is eventually tied to a prison break
12. Kate Langley – forced to stab her new boyfriend, an ex-con, when he tries to strangle her
13. Michael Emery – committed suicide after the building he designed and oversaw was structurally unsound and collapsed, killing 83 people.


FYI – I write police procedurals so I always have something grisly going on. These are more mainstream characters than bit players, if you will. I have an active imagination.
