Hi Morilyn! So sorry I missed this question until now:( And thanks so much for reading and loving.

I'm working on the fourth book (Gabe's story) slowly but surely. But it's almost done, then it will be on to editing and revising. So I'm hoping this spring. (less)

Hello, Medusa Dracul! (Great name!)

Well, once I have at least a vague idea of the plot, I usually decide on general traits such as dependable, strong willed, artistic, spunky, etc... Then I think about what's important to the character to drive their motivations and decisions. For example, Riley's family was very important to her in In the Band, which lead to several plot turns. Lastly, I try to give each character some individuality with 'props.' These could be words they use a lot, interests they have, certain clothes they wear, etc...

However, I will admit that I never totally feel I know a character until I reach about fifty pages, and sometimes I do back track when they become fully rounded to me.

Before my husband bought me my Kindle (something he regrets now), I relied on the library and the used bookstore for my voracious reading habit. There is nothing like coming home with ten or more books, spreading them out on the table, and deciding which one you’re going to devour first. Of course, some were duds—as in not my cup of tea—but there were always some good ones, and even some treasu...

“It’s not too hard to hold someone’s who’s already caught”
Jean Haus, In the Band
tags: love

“Love doesn’t always make sense. To the person in it or to the people around them. The falling can be an emotional, chaotic whirlwind. The landing jarring and eye opening. But if two people are really in love, there’s nothing in this world that can overcome it. Even if they can’t be together, love doesn’t cease.”

Oh, I'll have to check that one out, too. I loved Zach as well.


Patricia Puddle Hi Jean, thanks for the friendship. I loved Sleeping Handsome, and I loved the cover with the boy on the front. It's what drew me in. :)

Can't wait to read more of your work. Nice to meet you.
