Is Seth, Peg's father in your novel, named after Seth, the Canadian cartoonist?
No, Mario. I choose character names carefully and finally settled on Seth because it has a slightly, not sinister exactly, but kind of edgy feel to it. Seth is a complicated character.
But I LOVE the cartoonist Seth! His work is fabulous. And I saw him once on the street. He lives in Guelph, ON (about an hour's drive from Toronto). I just happened to be in Guelph and I was sitting in this burrito place having lunch when I spotted Seth across the street. He's easy to spot because no one else wears a fedora and trenchcoat. He looks straight out of the 40s or 50s. I was completely star struck. Anyway, I watched him get into a Chevy Cavalier and just felt so sad. I have made a vow if I ever hit the bigtime I am going to buy Seth a cool car. lol.
My oldest son, who is a computer animator at a computer gaming company in southern California, has mentioned Seth before. Just curious. Thanks.
Sounds like a neat guy. He could probably use the money. Ran across an article, from a couple of years ago, when his art was stolen that he wanted to sell.
I like this stone.
