Today is October 7th, the birthday of Jesse Alexander, singer extraordinaire and main character in my novels, CONQUEST and NO FEAR. It's mentioned in CONQUEST the 7th is his birthday, and since writing the story, whenever this day comes around, I always have to tell him happy birthday. Is it a little kooky of me? Maybe. But I make no secret that Jesse is very special to me and I give him credit for making me a published author.
So, happy birthday, dear Jesse. And don't worry, I'll leave singing the "Happy Birthday Song" to Evan. I know you'll like that much better than my off key screeching ;-)
