Hehe you can tell I am a) bored and b) working my way through the forums >.<
Lisey is a Stephen King character. She's married to a successful author who dies in strange circumstances which are all linked to the supernatural and a lot of psychology. Essentially I choose her name because even though we may not seem alike, her tendency to be honest about her abilities and the strength of her relationship with her husband are all things I bear in mind. She smashed a would be assassin over the head with a shovel, too, which is just awesome. Yeah, even though she's not the most glamorous or smart character ever, she stays strong even when put upon and has the courage and strength to go where she knows there is danger to save the things she loves.
And now I am off to reread Lisey's Story
