Some had elements of real people here and there--others just came to life as the story and their part in it progressed. Getting to know a character in a story is a lot like getting to know a new friend. The more you hang around with them, the better you get to know their personality and how they would react in each situation. For Forbidden Sea I also drew sketches of the main characters which helped me to visualize and understand them better. I also created a music soundtrack with songs that represented each character. When I'd write a scene with that character, I would play their song. (less)

Shadow in the Sea by Sheila A. Nielson
"I love the way Sheila writes, but there's no question her first book was a little better than this one, which is why I have it one less star.
That said, what a fun sequel! Mermaids, a fantastic villain, and a well set up plot."

Jacqueline Kelly
“One day I would have all the books in the world, shelves and shelves of them. I would live my life in a tower of books. I would read all day long and eat peaches. And if any young knights in armor dared to come calling on their white chargers and plead with me to let down my hair, I would pelt them with peach pits until they went home.”
Jacqueline Kelly, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another What! You
“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Douglas Adams
“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time

Terry Pratchett
“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time
