The name of the main character and why she was given her name is one of my favorite parts of the book.
When I began writing "Light Throughout The Night", I didn't have a name for the main character. As I was writing, I kept trying to think of a good name. Many months after I began writing, I thought of the name Glow.
The day I thought of Glow as the name of the main character I was going through the alphabet, beginning with A, trying to think of every name I could think of beginning with the letter A. Then, B, C, D, E, F, and G. When I got to G, I thought of Glow.
A few months before I thought of the name, I watched the G.L.O.W. Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling documentary. The documentary reminded me of the G.L.O.W. Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling television series.
I grew up in a very small town at the end of a dead end road towards the outskirts of town. The house where I grew up didn't have cable or an antenna on the roof for many years. In the outskirts of a small town, without a roof antenna, there isn’t much, if any reception.
Sometime during the mid-1980’s a rather large roof antenna was installed, and a television was purchased for the basement. One of the first shows I remember watching regularly was G.L.O.W. Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling. I got up every Saturday and Sunday morning, went downstairs to the basement to watch G.L.O.W. Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling and Saturday morning cartoons.
G.L.O.W. Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling displayed many things I was trying to instill in "Light Throughout The Night". The television show was dramatic, adventurous, sexy, and educational. Wrestling matches focused on real world issues and the wrestlers showed a tremendous amount of character through their performances.
When I thought of the name Glow, I immediately knew I was going to name the main character Glow.
