Ask Away...

Q & A Wednesday...


Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF CHARACTER TO WRITE?

A: Hmmm...probably the anti-hero. As much fun as writing the "hero" can be, the bad guy is always easier for me. You can usually let go a little bit with the darker characters. The best scenario is "the bad guy" who is the "hero." They always have the best story arc...

Q: WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE TO WRITE...MALE OR FEMALE CHARACTERS?

A: Female! Male is much easier to write (being one myself) but the girls are so much more exciting. Much more complicated. I have so many male characters that I truly love exploring through my storytelling but I've found my stories really take shape when developing the female characters. The "girls" make or break the story, in my opinion. One of my upcoming manuscripts has a female lead that I am head over heals excited about! She is awesome! If I do my job right, she will change the game in female heroes. Cross your fingers...

Q: WHICH CHARACTER IN YOUR WORK IS YOUR FAVORITE SO FAR?

A: Due to the fact that my writing is engulfed by the Ember series right now...probably Max Valentine. His muse Asia Michaels runs a close second. When I started writing the series I didn't expect to enjoy writing her story arc...it scared me a little. She's so damaged, so lost. I thought I would have a hard time reflecting that. It turns out to be the opposite...she brings out the creativity in me. Asia rocks! However...if I take a step back and look at all the different personalities I've created...there is a new female that I have enjoyed more than any other person so far. Her name is Olivia and she is a big part of my next series (13 BREATHS)... Hopefully I will have some exciting news on my next project soon...M.D.
