I’ve already told you that I occasionally use the names of my students (with their permission, of course) in my stories. The characters are not representations of their namesakes; they have their own adventures, conflicts, and personalities which are completely distinct. Still, sometimes the fictional and real have the odd thing in common.
For example, in Grace Awakening Myth there’s a character called J-Roy. You learned the other day that J-Roy dances, is athletic, and looks great in a unitard.
The real J-Roy is also pretty tough. Look who’s a head-liner in a local mixed martial arts fight? Uh huh. Ben desperately needs all the help he can get. I wonder if J. Roy will give him fighting lessons? 😉
