The dread chore of naming characters

It’s so hard coming up with new names! These are the names from just one book. Incoming, the first book in the Veterans Affairs series. Since it is a series, these names come up in other books as well.

      I love Connie. I think I’m going to use that. It’s not close to anything I’ve used before. And thanks for the link!
