No, my real mom, Elaina, isn't nearly as out there and crazy as Skye. But she is the inspiration behind Skye's character, as she's lovable, crazy in a fun way and zany. Elaina:
- Really has third-eye glasses with a blinking center.
- Used to scare potential boyfriends away with her 5 foot high pyramid of 2x4s she used for meditating.
- Has really coined several of the LOL lines in the book.
- Has really been married a bunch of times, and has now found the love of her life at 70, who she's most definitely NOT marrying. 🙂
- Has actually has helped police before on different cases.
- Has no problem with embarrassing the crap out of me.
