Question # 6
Are any of your characters real people?
Since my story is set at a historical place and time, I did include several people who were living at that time. The Reverend Cochrane and his wife were real people, as were Governor Simpson, Duncan MacRae, and the Sinclair sisters, Harriet and Maria. Since their descendants might read my story, I tried to portray them all in a favourable light although I did take a few liberties, assuming that they would have acted a certain way if presented with the actions of my imaginary character, Michelle.
