“Me” – Mommy, Mama, Muh-therr. Widow. Writer. Hermit. Possibly mild sociopathic tendencies.
“G” – The boy. High-energy 10-year-old who loves all things mechanical. If you can do it outdoors and it involves a tool, he is in for anything. Idolizes the guys from Mythbusters. Recently enthralled with Minecraft but only if he can chat with other kids online while doing it. Seems harmless…for now.
“Shifty” – Shifty Switchblade. She comes by the name honestly, I promise. Precocious 8-year-old body that apparently has a 3, 000-year-old alien trapped inside. Mildly obsessed with the internal workings of things. Ok, by things, I mean living creatures. By obsessed I mean has a collection of skulls and bones.
