Simon was the first character I imagined for this book. In fact, the dream he has toward the end of the story is from a dream I had years ago.
Simon is the Key Screening Person (HR Director) for the Amalgamate United Corporate, which does so many things, for some many people (yada yada yada). He does the hiring, orientation, personnel reviews and firings. It’s his job to hold everyone’s professional fate in his hands and stand aloof, like he could not care less. But that’s just not his personality.
He’s also in love with Morgan Vale, but too scared to say anything, in case she thinks he’s gross or evil. Or worse, she could discover that he really does like Air Supply and Neil Diamond.
