I’ll introduce you to a new character each week for a while starting with MP, who will be like me because the only way to make my biological father, Mac McGenty, whom I never met, real was to create a character. Kate AKA Marilyn and Sara are based on how I’d guess my two (half) sisters (Mc Genty’s) might be. Peewee is based on a huge kid I met in 4th grade. Barney was the best man in my wedding who died way too young. Heidi on an island girl in the Bahamas. Lottie and Spense I yet hope to meet somewhere.
Here's an excerpt from Back to the Island
"MP woke in the morning to Lottie gently swinging him in the hammock. She was wrapped in one of his sweaters, an old rolled-neck cardigan, smoking a joint. His back was killing him from sleeping all night in the hammock, but when he realized she was naked behind his cardigan, the pain dissipated magically. One shoulder was exposed, tanned and freckled, as was plenty of cleavage, tanned and freckled. A lot of thigh, more tenderly tanned and, naturally, less freckled, was showing below the sweater. He feckin’ loved freckles."
