Fiona: Tell us your latest news?

Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I used to write in high school but stopped after my mom died. I started writing again when I kept having dreams where I was Maddie and I got to experience her.

Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Certainly! Here’s a small excerpt:
“I’m curious about something,” Logan said, breaking the quiet. “You work with our counterparts, correct?”
“I do. They work in a different department than I do, but we work on the same floor,” Maddie said.
“How different are we from them?” Logan asked.
“From my experiences, not that different. The eyes give you away though,” Maddie told him.
“What do you mean?” John asked.
“I can look in your eyes and see the pain you mask. Seth is better at it than you are, but I can still see it. You’ve lived a rough life,” Maddie told him.
Almost instantly, the three of them broke their gaze.
“It’s okay. I can’t imagine that this life is an easy one,” Maddie said, quickly backtracking.
“It’s not,” Logan simply said.
“Wow, you got them pegged,” Jackson said with a laugh.
“You too, jerkface. You fought in most of the same battles as we have,” Seth said, tossing a few peanuts at Jackson.
“You certainly are different than I expected you to be,” John said as he put out his cigarette. Logan nodded in agreement.
“And how did you expect me to be?” Maddie asked.
“Honestly? Docile. Meek,” John responded.
“I guess I’m supposed to be.” Maddie frowned.
“Don’t say that. Don’t sound like you are apologizing,” John said.
Maddie tossed back another shot. “I appreciate that.”
“No, I’m serious. Don’t apologize for who you are, Maddie. You are a beautiful person, inside and out. You are warm and funny. Plus, you can shoot pool and alcohol like no girl I’ve ever known,” John told her.
“Maybe you’ve been hanging out with the wrong kind of girls.” Maddie smiled at him.
“You may be onto something there.” John grinned.
