    How to Write Characters with some Not-so-Great Traits with Kelly Hitchcock

    in Books

    Raised by a single father in the small town of Buffalo, Missouri, Kelly has fond memories of life being broke living in the Ozarks that strongly influence her writing and way of life.  She’s a graduate of Missouri State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing. She has six-year-old identical twins and a full-time job, so writing and picking up LEGO are the only other things she can devote herself to.
    As Ann battles the inner demons that plague her millennial psyche, she must also battle the fiends that plague her at the gym: the loudly grunting beefcake who can’t be bothered to drop his weights at a reasonable volume, the naked old lady in the locker room using a towel as butt floss, the housewife in yoga pants that obviate the need for yoga wheeling her double stroller up and down the indoor track. Set in suburban Kansas City in the early 2010s, Community Klepto—a droll combination of Bridget Jones’ Diary and Choke—makes incarnate the characters and shenanigans that go on in every gym in the world.

The book emphasizes the relationship between the carers and the seniors, a relationship based on an appreciation for seniors and an educated awareness of aging… People are missing opportunities that may have a significant impact on the lives of others, including their own.
