When I asked for votes on the order my characters should appear in The Crazy Ladies of Oakwood: Part One–The Florentine Escapade (or Escapade in Tuscany?) I was amazed to find that every single respondent chose McKenzie as the first character to be presented. The really odd thing about it is that each of my characters work out their own particular craziness in one of the four volumes of the series. McKenzie is the one I chose (after I wrote the opening chapters) to find herself in Volume One! So all that works out logically, even if I didn’t see it!
Herc (aka David) and I put off watching NCIS last night long enough to talk over the basics of each woman’s adventures. He is absolutely the best co-conspirator there is. Witness his magnificent photography. Of course, as the ladies add their two cents, the plot will evolve and change into something as close to real as I can make it.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to read the chapters and advise me! (See last post if you have no idea what I’m talking about). Your input was great!
