  1. Cassie says:

    Julie is a brunette? All along I was picturing her as blonde, in contrast to Kate’s brunette hair. Somehow I thought that was an important distinction. Now I’m going to have to totally retcon the whole movie I have in my head.

  2. That’s right, Julie is a brunette. You can see a reference to that back in Chapter 13. I’ve always thought of her hair as perhaps a shade or two lighter than Kate’s, however — some might even call it dirty blonde, although she regards herself as a brunette. Molly is the only real blonde among the daughters. There’s a ‘picture’ of Julie in Chapter 2. Pretty cute, don’t you think?

    • Cassie says:

      I would definitely call the picture in chapter 2 dirty blonde, and yes she is cute. Do you have a picture for Kate?

      Also, I imagine that the girls in this story are somewhat modeled after you own daughters, is that true?

      • I have only one daughter, and she doesn’t really resemble any of Suzanne’s kids — however, I have used her as a model for characters in some of my other stories. I’ll leave it up to you to guess what those might be. ;)

        And, no, I’m sorry, but I don’t have a picture anywhere of Kate. I had one many years ago when I started writing this story that I used a model for her, but I can’t locate it now. It’s somewhere on an old computer, I think. If I ever find it, I’ll let you know.
