Name Characters after Us?
we r big fans of the alice series!! we r emailing u because we r wondering if you r going to continue the alice series when she and her friends are off at college? if you do so we were hoping that you could add 2 characters named after us. p.s. this is random but i had a book idea that a gay boy and a lesbian girl r best friends trying to survive high school with all the bullies.
I’ve omitted your names, but I’m flattered that you’d like me to name some characters after you and your friends. I never do that, however, because it distorts the way these characters act in my novels. And it’s an interesting idea to have a lesbian and a gay character become best friends and fight discrimination–so good an idea that it’s been used in a number of books. Happy New Year to you and your friends!
