277: A character named after you in S.C. Ransom’s new novel, out in 2014

S. C. RansomITEM: A character named after you in a novel out in 2014 by S.C. Ransom, author of the Small Blue Thing.

BIO: Sue Ransom, the author of Small Blue Thing, Perfectly Reflected, and Scattering Like Light, is a senior headhunter, but on the way to work and in the evenings she’s a writer: she wrote Small Blue Thing, her debut novel, as a birthday present for her daughter, and she composed it mostly on her BlackBerry. Serendipity led her to Nosy Crow, and she’s since completed the trilogy. She’s now busy finishing off her next project. She lives with her husband and two teenage children in Surrey.

    I’d really love to be in aunt Sue’s new book because I think it’s a wonderful idea of bring in the reads itself into the story, it creates a broader imagination.
    I really loved the trilogy of small blue thing, it made me open into this whole new world, the world of dirges, love, loss and memory!
