Beautiful People – Parental Figures

Beautiful people is a writing meme cohosted by Cait from Paper FuryĀ and Sky fromĀ Further Up and Further InĀ that is designed to help you get to know your characters better and share about your writing projects. I thought it would be fun to participate in this considering I am trying to share more about my writing with you guys and my main character’s parents play a large role in the story. This meme is for the whole of May so there’s still heaps of time for you to join in if you’re interested.
