If I were to write myself as a character, I'd make me and lot smarter than I am. I'd know things that would make the reader's heads spin. Like how DSL works, or why when we get older we forget the simplest of stuff. In reality, I'm a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, but in my books ... oh, these would be a series, I'd be a really smart detective ... think Lauren Bacall in her early years. I'd kick ass and take names, and make those sorry who ever crossed me. And I'd know how DSL works. I'd also know why men are the way they are. Can't close anything they open and that includes their fly.
Anyway, I might not be beautiful, but nice looking, but with a mouth on me that would keep the worst guys at bay. And I'd own a 2011 Thunderbird, red as a fire engine.
