Let's start off with the characters.
Martin - my boyfriend Michael. Most of what
Martin says has not been said by Michael, but hey. It's a pretty
good mock-up of Michael's character. The physical descriptions
are all accurate.
Tamara - me. Big surprise. She's a lot
sassier than me, and doesn't cuss as much as I do, but apart from
that we're dead similar.
Nate - my ex boyfriend and one of my best
friends, Nathan. He and I spend most of our lives arguing and
then making up, but I love him to bits for it. No sarcasm
Randi - my best friend Bryony. Randi is
quite similar to Bryony, but there are a fair few differences.
Don't ask me to list them, I can't remember all of them
Jez - Jez is loosely based on two people,
my mate Ted and my mate Harry Heath. I figured that I could give
him Harry's wittiness and Ted's humour, and that's the result. I
have to say, a good job done there!
Annie - Michael's sister. She's nutty as
anything, but I love her to bits.
Aunt Jane - loosely based on my friend
Lauren, who is a lot like my Aunt Jane. Also based on Bella's mum
(yes, Bella from Twilight, yes I like the films, deal with
Scott - based on my dad. Weird, huh?
Prinz - surprise surprise, based on someone
I know from my old school called Peter Bean.
Gracie - based on a girl I knew called Jess
Bell. Less said about her the better - she made my life hell for
2 years. Nuff said.
Why did I write One Girl's Fight?
Well, I had the title knocking around in my head
for a while, so I thought about putting it into poetry. After
many failed attempts, I went back to the drawing board and this
story took shape. It's mostly autobiographical, but I'm saying no
Now for the sequel. Yes, there will be a
OK. Well, all the characters listed above will
appear, with Prinz, Annie, Scott and Aunt Jane having bigger
The sequel will be called Call Me
And that's all I really have to say.
