Dear readers, tonight with me is a young woman who moved to a small rural town — where things are not quite as they seem.
She is here to tell us whether there is something more to kids than dressing as goths, or running away from home once a month.
Can you introduce yourself, please?
My name is Bridget Etheridge and I am eighteen years old. The tales in “The Nevermore Parables Series”, which commences with Mystic Evermore, are punctuated with extracts from my diary. So you can say I’m sort of the narrator. The books don’t use the first person all the time – but the guiding thread is ME!
Tell us a little about where you grew up. What was it like there?
I’m an army kid. I grew up everywhere my father was transferred, which was mostly around the easterly coast of the United States of America. It was quite unsettling and I didn’t have any long term friends until we moved to Mystic Evermore in Georgia. By that time I was desperate for us to settle down and with any luck, this will become a permanent placement for dad and we might settle down.
Did you have any favorite toys as a child? Any cherished memories?
As an army kid, I got pretty good at letting go of material possessions. I do have a collection of school uniforms from all the different schools I have attended. Role plays anyone?
What do you do now?
I’m a senior at Mystic Evermore High. What else would an eighteen year old be doing? Oh and I have some volunteer work happening.Continue reading “Bridget Etheridge (of Mystic Evermore, by Cecelia Hopkins-Drewer)”
