Delilah Barber is a character I’m developing for future appearances in my next story collection and a novel I’m planning. Some of her backstory can be found in posts on this blog. She was first runner-up for Miss Georgia in the early-nineties, and a Falcons cheerleader while she was in college, where she entertained children in hospitals with her ventriloquism act, dressed as a clown. She later marries Herb Templeton, whose son, Felix, has been pursuing her. After meeting David Cairo, she divorces Herb and takes back her maiden name. These are some AI renderings I made entering her description into MidJourney.
