This is my heroine in Storm Warning. Isn't she gorgeous? Sorcha Logan. Scientific researcher and reluctant medium. She looks kind of capable doesn't she? And a little bit haunted? And she was a Surf-Life Saver in Australia, where she did her Masters, so she has to be fit. She looks pretty fit to me (I don't mean that in a British, 'She's fit' sort of way, that sixteen-year-olds' use). I am not a lesbian. But I can appreciate beauty.
This lady's real name is Caroline and she's a model for Boden
I'm lusting for clothes again :)
Back to Sorcha--I need to invent some great MSc project for her to have carried out around Brisbane, and even invent a couple of scientific paper titles that my hero can ponder over in the Journal of Bird poop .
(I have papers--Journal of Fish Biology, Journal of Experimental Biology, Biometry and some others I've forgotten). Hey, I'm a PUBLISHED author *vbg*
Anyway I need something that uses cameras and telemetry, combined with some sort of chemical analysis of poop (that is what they do :)). Actually turtles might work too. Her PhD is looking at puffins so I need technology that goes from land to sea to air. So turtles, while of the outside differing tremendously from puffins, might be close enough for the technology to be a straight switch. (I do realize that turtles don't fly BTW).
Need to think of something interesting and complex to bamboozle Ben (the hero--or Eric as I call him), but that won't bamboozle the intelligent readers--so all this thinking for maybe a paragraph in my novel?
