Hello! My name is Meredith Powers, and I’ve been asked to introduce my author, Pamela Wight, to you.
Well, of course, many of you already know Pamela as the blogger of Roughwighting. But I know her more intimately – she created me.
But according to Pamela in her response in D. Wallace Peach’s post (in the Myths of the Mirror blog), I kind of created myself.
I wholeheartedly agree with Pamela. She began my story with a notebook, a pen, and the prompt:
“I scraped the runny fried egg off the bottom of the frying pan, slid it onto a piece of burnt toast, threw the food onto a small plate, and deposited the entire foul-smelling affair in front of __________.”
And voila! I elbowed my way into that space between Pamela’s pen and the lined paper and began my story about Parker, my ex-boyfriend who I was finished with. Finished, I tell you. And then there was Gregory, my current squeeze who after half a year was still quite an enigma to me.
Neither Pamela nor I knew that Parker and Gregory had a connection to a drug smuggling ring. Neither Pamela nor I knew that I’d end up being kidnapped and seduced. Or that I’d become the seducee to the seducer.
Is there such a word, seducee?
Shrug. I have no idea; that’s Pamela’s problem. She’s the writer.
But before I tell too much of my story, I’ll pass you onto D. Wallace Peach and her fabulous review of my book.
Or should I say, Pamela’s book?
Either way you look at it, my story is a page-turner. But don’t listen to me. I’m “just” a fictitious character.
Listen to D. Wallace Peach.
