ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
people like Nan Bacco, it seems
There's a thread on the Trek BBS's "Trek Literature" forum that asks people to list their favorite literature-only characters -- to wit, characters that were created specifically for the Star Trek novel program. There've been a lot over the years, and I'm inordinately pleased to see that a character I created, Federation President Nan Bacco (introduced in my novel A Time for War, a Time for Peace, in which she was elected to high office), has shown up on a lot of people's lists.

I based Bacco in part on my great-grandmother, Grazia DeBacco, who died in 2003 at the age of 98. She was a great old lady, the matriarch of a huge, wonderful family, and it does my little heart proud to know that a character I based on her has proven to be a very popular Trek character, portrayed by a large number of writers.
