When fiction mirrors real life … a lot of my stories have been inspired by true events.
(Like the character Cara, when I was a 20 year old waitress I had a customer who loved putting signs on my car. The restaurant staff and regular customers were often entertained by it … One day I had some of my regular customers smiling and telling me they had teeth. Other guys would look at my name tag and smile big. I got suspicious and when I had a chance ran to my car. BIG sign, “Waitress looking for boyfriend, all he needs to have is teeth and a job. Inquire within, ask for Carolyn.” So yes, pranks have been part of my life for a LONG time!
80 degrees in October! … Why am I not back at the beach?
When awakened by the loud roar of a motorcyle down my street … I prefer waking slowly to Folger’s in my cup.
