The reader-nominated character for my next book, “The Reporter and the Apricot,” has been selected.
His name is Jackson Carlisle. He’s throwing newspapers to help pay his way through college, where he’s also on the track team.
He also has a pet terrier named Lee and a dream of becoming a sports therapist.
There’s more, of course, but we have to save something for the book.
Congratulations and a bunch of thanks to Darsha Dodge for her nomination. Thanks, also, to everyone who submitted entries. You all know I appreciate you.
