I’m glad you’ve come back for another installment of Meet the Characters. This week we’re meeting, Bren, Sandy Ramsey’s character in the psychological thriller SINGULARITY‘S due out on Aug. 4th. I’ve read it y’all and it is creepy, strange and utterly enthralling. It’s available for preorder and you can receive get signed copies, bundles with JESSICA, posters and more. I loved this book and that’s why I’m taking you down the rabbit hole that is Jessica B.Bell. If this is all new to you, start here at the beginning. Don’t forget to stay for the trailer at the end. It’s hauntingly good.
SINGULARITY was written by Helena Hann Basquiat with Sara Litchfield, Sandy Ramsey, Lizzi Rogers, and Hannah Sears. It’s a companion piece to JESSICA, which was released last year. (It’s not required reading, but I urge you to pick it up.) Jessica B. Bell is the brain child of Helena Hann-Basquiat, but she’s somehow pushing beyond just the stretches of the imagination. She wants to be more.
What happens when the creation surpasses the creator? How far will Jessica go to be real?
Today we have Sandy Ramsey discussing her character- Bren. My questions and comments are in purple.
Well, how do I do this without giving anything away? It started with my own thoughts on the one thing that would drive me to the brink of madness, or totally over the edge. That was it.Ihaveto be honest and say I completely flew by the seat of my pants. I promised myself that I wouldn’t hold back. Her story is my nightmare.
Nothing really changed the way I felt about her.I think Helena/Ken did a great job putting all the pieces together. I will say this….Jessica casts a largeshadowsoIwas worried Bren would get lost. That didn’t happen. At all.
Philosophy. Just kidding. I write life stuff. I am a recovering addict and alcoholic so most ofwhatIwriteis centered around the subject. I’ve been sober 18 years and learned a thing or two along the way. All I really do is share my experiences and try to offer hope. I write without a net. Fiction is a side project that I’m hoping to dive into a bit deeper.
Sandy is a writer. She is also a wife and a mother, a daughter and a friend. At the end of the day if she can lay her head on the pillow and feels that she has done her best, knows she tried to do the next right thing, then it is has been a good day. Learning when to hold on and when to let go will always be her challenge, but, Lord love her, she tries. She is the author of An Honest Sinner, where she writes about her addiction and other character flaws as well as the things that make her life unexpectedly amazing. Actually, you never really know what she’ll write about. You can also follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
