Meet Kate (aka Marilyn)

So, I hope you like being teased. 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 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

"He was, though, very curious about what these little whiney whimperers would look like, but most curious about the female. How had she managed to stay so calm with those sniveling dickheads? Who had done what to whom? What was the thud?

Then, calm as could be, she appeared from the back. At first glimpse MP thought she looked stunning, beautiful ... but then, not. She had short, dark hair. It looked ... he couldn’t tell what ... but not quite right. She was fairly short, and he thought, stocky. But as she strode confidently toward him, he saw her long, conservative skirt had an incongruous slit up the side almost all the way to her hip, and the leg, of which quite a bit was exposed, was surprisingly pleasant and firm, like her voice. Was this the Marilyn? "
