Real life Dacey BrownPosted: November 16, 2013
Okay, so, my characters are very alive in my head. I see them clearly — the way they hold themselves, how they walk, the funny little verbal tics, the way their hair falls in their eyes or stands straight up or whatever it does. So the other night, when I was checking Twitter, my stomach swooped like I was falling in love when I saw a familiar name in my mentions.
That was weird!
Turns out Dacey is an Albertan teenager who’s crazy ’bout curling. And also looks a lot like my Dacey Brown. Younger, of course.
So naturally I searched Evan Cornfield — and found two of them, though neither is very active. And I searched Lansing Meadows, too.
But he’s one of a kind, I guess.
