Mother’s Day at the Macaronis
Over on The Macaronis blog we’re having a day of posting excerpts and articles to do with our characters’ relationships with their mothers.
I’m ashamed to say that this topic has made me realize how little my lads have to do with their mothers. Alec from Shining in the Sun being the notable exception, since his mum is extremely hands on in his life. In fact, many of my characters don’t have mothers at all, since they died early in their life, leaving them Conveniently an Orphan.
I’ve recently had a streak of bad fathers as villains, but this makes me think it’s about time I gave some love to my mothers. As a mother myself, I would prefer not to be so easily written out.
