Is This Man a Walk-In?


A segment on the CBS Early Show this morning caught my attention. Before a double brain aneurysm put him into a coma, Tommy McHugh, a handyman from Liverpool, England, never exhibited much interest in art. However, as documented in the Early Show, when McHugh awakened from his week-long coma, he suddenly became a compulsive artist. Now, he paints for up 18 hours a day. His whole life has changed.

The story made me wonder, is McHugh now a walk-in? Is he like Lily, the heroine in my soon-to-be-released book, Night Watch? Lily's life changes and her interests shift when trauma strikes her life. Lily changes her job and her life goals. And she starts having different memories as well. Now nothing was said about McHugh having unusual memories, but they said he is now more emotional than he was in the past.

In my book, following her traumatic event, Lily appears different to her friends. She doesn’t like the things she once liked, and she withdraws from her friends of the past.

Is McHugh a walk-in? Is Lily?

That's quite a freaky thought! Do walk-in's actually happen?
If McHugh is one then I guess we have an answer!

I believe they do. Years ago, Ruth Montgomery wrote an amazing book on the subject--Strangers Among Us.

Hi Monti:

This sounds like a fabulous premise for a novel! Can't wait to read it!

Funny you should mention this. I've been playing around with a stand alone novel about someone coming out of a coma but after a much longer time and no one realizing they were out of it because they weren't able to move.
