A few posts ago, we gave you an introduction to the Rogues Gallery Writers, the authors of our upcoming paperback release of The Method Writers, via their mockumentary, Behind the Prose. Now we’d like to introduce you to each of the Rogues individually, starting with our very own She author, Bridget Callaghan.

For The Method Writers, Bridget created the delightfully quirky loner, Georgie Mae Perez, a character who would prefer to introduce herself:
Georgie Mae Perez
“There’s not much to say about my life . . . yet. I’m not old enough to have anything really interesting happen. I’m a loner, I don’t like a lot of people and anything I say is my own version of myself. Which may or may not be a lie. So, you can look at my words, my descriptions and concoct your own interpretation of who I am.”
The following excerpt from The Method Writers is from Georgie Mae’s perspective and was written by Bridget Callaghan:
