Meet Agent Hedge Parker

Posted on

Hedge Parker

Age: 42, Birthday: January 11

Height: 6′-4″  Weight: 196 lbs.

 

Hedge Parker was born the third child, with ten sisters, to Linda and Oscar Parker of Sidney, Nebraska. As the only son in the family, Hedge took it upon himself to become his sisters’ protector. This led to a constant series of fights throughout his school years. Hedge became known in his small town as a trouble-maker, and by the time he entered high school, he was a perfect candidate for military school. Hedge straightened himself out, and upon graduation, enlisted in the US Army.

His broad skillset and above-average IQ caught the eyes of nearly every national intelligence agency for recruitment. Hedge joined InDIGO at the age of 24, becoming one of the youngest field operatives in the organization’s history.

With his partner, Eleanor McKinnon, Hedge developed an idea for a nearly undetectable surveillance suit, to be beta-tested by Agent McKinnon. After getting the green light for official development, the pair find themselves in Mexico City when their mission goes sideways. Agent McKinnon was critically hurt and taken out of the field. Hedge continued his field operations, refusing to take on another partner.

After a few years as a solo agent, consulting on the LBD project, Hedge agrees to take on a team when the dress becomes officially activated.

Hello, February!

Posted on

hello FebFebruary begins at midnight, and you know what that means – all of our New Year’s Resolutions have become distant memories, well beyond our reach.  🙂 This seems like the perfect time to take up new challenges (or refresh old ones) and get motivated once again.

I will be participating in the Women’s Fiction Writers Association “Write-a-Thin” as well as the #AuthorLifeMonth Instagram Challenge. My goal for the WFWA W-a-T is that I finish revising one of my manuscripts, and have it ready to go into my editor’s hands by the end of the month. That’s a big deal, but I feel as though it’s not out of reach. The Instagram Challenge may be a little more difficult for me because I forget to take and post pictures.

To avoid over-sharing, I tend to become reclusive. I’m a natural introvert. A homebody. Give me a book or movie (and coffee or chocolate) and I’m good for hours. I don’t do many selfies. I’d much rather post a picture of my dogs or cats. It’s not that I’m embarrassed about what I look like, I’m just not a great selfie-taker. So this will be a challenge for me, and I sincerely hope that it will not only improve my photo skills but also improve my attitude about it.

So I’m asking for your help in this. I have a list of subjects to use as a guide for the Instagram challenge, but I will need a little encouragement. So if you’re on Instagram please follow me and show me a little love. I promise I will do my best to follow back. My handle is kimblackink and you can click HERE for my Instagram profile. Thanks in advance.
