It’s another Thursday Thirteen! My random subject matter in this post consists of a selection of thirteen character names in my as-of-yet-unpublished books.
Wes - 15 year old foster son being physically abused (only) by his police officer foster father
Lisa – Wes’ foster sister, 14 years old, in the same position
Harry - the girl chasing, promiscuous half of the gorgeous 16 year old Hathaway twins
Sam - second half of the Hathaway twins, sullen, with a penchant for violence and destruction
Dan - police officer and abusive foster father to Wes and Lisa
As-of-yet untitled historical fiction:
Lexi - second oldest in a group of nine children who survived their town’s outbreak of scarlet fever and have been brought to a new town to be adopted by a reclusive farmer
Colin - the young but reclusive farmer with a sordid past who plans to use the children as work horses on his farm.
Shane - third oldest in the line of children, sympathetic to Lexi’s plight
Mari - fourth oldest in the line of children, helps Lexi with the mounting domestic and farm tasks since Colin has prohibited both girls from attending school in town
Jackson - son of Colin’s best friend - a neighboring farmer and raging drunkard - who secretly admires Lexi from afar
As-of-yet untitled futuristic fiction:
Parker - one half of the judging team that hears and sentences all homicides that occur in his high-rise Life Tower, one of seven mega-towers that now house all people on earth
