Character Reveal: Wanda

It’s another character reveal! Characters from my books (in print or works-in-progress) answer questions from a standard personality assessment test. (See previous ones: Miranda, Irene, Beryl, Leslie). Today’s character reveal: Wanda Terry.

Who Wanda Terry is twenty-two in If I Should Die. When she was eighteen, she wriggled under her bed to get her shoe. That was when the Angel of Death Took her father and cousins. She ran and hid on the streets of town for months. After she was raped a second time, she collapsed in an alley and waited to die. But a kind black man who was a member of the rebels found her.

I hope they would say that I am a good mother, a good wife, and a good Fellowship member. 4. What is the question people ask you most often? People ask many things.
