Meet Gregory Hancock!!

This is it kids, the last character biography. What?! Were you expecting me to write dossiers on the entire population of Bayou Boudreaux? There are a few more characters I’d like to introduce, and I will, but it won’t be as in depth as the last several have been. Starting next week I will be introducing characters from a few author friends’ stories. Don’t worry, you’ll love them. And it doesn’t really matter if you hate them, I love them so they’re going to be on my blog. The end.

Now, on to Gregory Hancock.  Mr. Hancock was discovered by Stephan Boudreaux while on a trip to London. Mr. Hancock was Stephan’s cab driver. He impressed Stephan so much that he imported him to America. Mr. Hancock lives life to a certain standard. He has made the conscious decision to be happy and love life. He does not let anything interfere with that decision. If someone wrongs him, he does not seek retribution. He lets it go. Mr. Hancock believes that nothing angers an enemy more than a smile and forgiveness.

Ten things you should know about Mr. Hancock:

10. I may not be wealthy, but I am happy.

9. I don’t need a million friends. I just need one good one.

7. I enjoy what I do. I’ve never ‘worked’ a day in my life.

6. Miss Kat likes to ask for my advice while we drive. Every time I tell her the same thing, you’re only asking because you know the answer and you don’t like it.
5. I believe life is like a coin. You can only spend it once. Spend it wisely.
