My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Leah Walker.
I've worked in a lot of places, but I've never had a boss like Richard Bailey. He's a dream. If there's something you need, he'll go out of his way to help you, and it wouldn't even occur to him to ask for anything in return. His passion for his team is like nothing I've ever seen before, and it's amazing to be a part of something so special.
When I first met him, I was terrified. I really thought he'd be a scary manager, like the ones you see on TV, screaming at players whenever they do the smallest thing wrong. Richard doesn't work that way. He's laid back, and it earns him a lot of respect. You'd think that being so easy going would mean the players walked all over him, but instead, they work harder.
Richard sort of ... adopted me when I joined the team. I think he feels protective of me because I'm so far away from home. It's like having an extra dad to turn to! My move from Boston to L.A was made so much easier because of him, and I will always be grateful for that.
