I swear, I get the strangest emails. They often leave me shaking my head. Like this one.

Is it really wise to use the full name of someone that is LDS, seperated from her father, has a best friend named Cindy and used to play in the woods in the back of her house? No, I\’m not kidding…is it a coincidence, should I read your book? -Allison Jensen

I’m not sure if THIS Allison Jensen is trying to imply I used her life to write my book, which would be interesting because I have NO CLUE who she is. Both Allison and Jensen are very common names. I imagine there are probably quite a few Mormon Allison Jensens. Cindy, again, common name. Woods in the back of house? Pretty common. “Seperated” from father, well, again, REALLY common.

Next time I think I shall name my heroine Emma Smith. Or Jamamma Poncakes. Something weird like that…..
