Let's talk best friends. Because, to be honest, Christiana and Jordan wouldn't have much of a story in Writing Home, if not for Tina.
Tina and Chris grew up down the street from each other in their Nashville suburb, and were almost inseparable until Chris left to go to Huntsville for college. Now, Tina is still at home, and wishes Chris were, too.
When Chris asks for a pen pal, Tina immediately thinks of her cousin Jordan, who she used to write in middle and high school. And maybe for a few other reasons, too, but she's not disclosing those yet.
Tina loves to have fun, and is changing her hair every few weeks, adding colors or curls. She dresses trendy, and Chris has often wished for her sense of style.
But Tina doesn't have much luck when it comes to love. She flits from boyfriend to boyfriend, but never stays with one for long. It doesn't bother her ... much. She just goes on to the next social event and sees who is there who might be her next date.
Tina and Chris are a great example of opposites attracting, because they don't have a ton in common outside of their history. But they both know the other will be there for her, no matter what, despite the two and a half hour distance.
Do you have a best friend who is always there for you though sometimes not as helpful as she seems? Just a few more days until you get to meet Tina! And Chris and Jordan, too.
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
