“Easter Eggs” in Of Sun & Moon
In electronic media, we all know what Easter Eggs are…those hidden gems among our favorite video games, videos, and the like. Well, it just so happens that there are Easter Eggs in Of Sun & Moon and in the spirit of the upcoming Easter holiday, I wanted to share a few of them with you.
ACH – Drew’s initials that were embroidered on his baby blanket are also the initials commonly used for an electronic banking transaction, a nod to my day job.
Mrs. Bethany – Named for my sister Bethany who is also an educator. However, the real Bethany tells me that she never would have let Colby leave study hall.
Two boys – The two boys that almost knock over Keira at Nana’s birthday party BBQ are inspired by my two little boys.
Bianca Ryan – As a little girl, my favorite movie was The Rescuers, a cartoon adventure with mice. The heroine was a sophisticated girl mouse named Bianca.
Nana’s vanity mirror – My sarcasm was at work with this one. In most fairy tales, the mirror is important and holds great power. It’s not by accident that in this story, it just gets shoved.
Halloween – Keira dressed as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and William dressed as a vampire. William has dark hair. Yes, he was Angel.
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
