Don't you think it’s fairly reasonable that a person who spent over 15 years doing automotive advertising would have cars in her manuscript? If you said yes, well then read on and if you said no, well you're probably right because the cars don't really move my plot forward on the story superhighway.Cars are just a small personal luxury I've added to make things more realistic. Besides, aren't you suppose to write what you know? These models are not actually mentioned, but reference is made to raindrops on windshields, rent a cars, crashes, etc. In fact, it seems automobiles are popping up all over the place.
