Hello, fellow campaigners of the writing world! I hope you are excited to see things about my book characters because I sure am excited to share them!
These characters have been so fun to craft into who they are today, but I won’t lie and say they’re done growing, because I still don’t know everything about them.

The baby boy passed away shortly after contracting the illness, and then Hattie’s mother passed away the next week. After that, her father lost his job and the two of them had to move to the slums.
