Who likes to know a little behind-the-scenes information about a story? I know I do. In the spirit of Wayne Kovok, the fact-loving protagonist of my new novel, MAYDAY, I'm sharing facts about the story. (You might remember Wayne from his small role in COURAGE FOR BEGINNERS.)
MAYDAY is a story about friendship, fathers and sons, and the importance of finding one's voice.
BACKSTORY FACT 6
My good friend Tim is a car restoration professional. He helped me with the Ford Mustang research in MAYDAY. He also told me to put the word “weedwhacker” somewhere in the book. I couldn’t find a spot so I put it in the acknowledgments next to his name. He thinks that's hilarious.
