Those in my family have always amused ourselves with the thought that mum is immortal. My sister and I have often said if anyone called to say mum had died, we’d tell them to let her rest and check her in 20 min. I have always enjoyed mythology and the immortals. Mum really isn’t one of them. I love Loki (part of that might just be Tom Hiddleston in recent years….) and Norse gods and goddesses (must be my Scandinavian background). However, I am going to tell you something so cool, it is better than mythical heroes. Or at least, I think so! I, Kris, am now immortal.
I am not AN immortal, but I will live forever and ever. It is all because I bake and mail favorite authors treats. Yes, I am in a book. I still can’t believe it and I read it! Let me ‘splain. Lori Wilson is a FB friend. I’ve never actually met her, our paths haven’t managed to cross just yet in the real world. They’ve come close, though! Lori is the author of 3 (so far) books about a detective named Kelly Lowe. Kelly and her team solve crimes in the Pacific Northwest. In particular, from the Portland, Or area. In her last book, Kelly and others often visit a local coffee shop run by Krissy. Brews ‘n Buns, I believe, is the name of this establishment. Krissy is everything I’d love to be and some of what I actually am!!! She even uses the word ‘Piffle!’ I was very thankful Krissy did’t get killed in this story. I have read authors who kill off characters after you learn to like them! I was also glad she wasn’t a murderer. Arsenic and Old Lace is one of my favorite books, I loved the play, and I finally uprooted the beautiful nightshade in my garden after several years. However, I would much prefer remaining the friendly neighborhood bakester chick.
Here is the link to my friend’s book. I’m still in awe. Kris is pretty new to this immortal stuff.
