From my family members to friends (Family and friends have inspired many characters!) to readers (One reader I met inspired a wonderful character moment in my second book and another suggested a great locale that is going into my third book!) to reviewers (He doesn't know it, but one reviewer inspired me to "fire" a character in one of my books! LOL!), etc. - everyone I meet or communicate with inspires me in some way. And if someone thinks s/he is the inspiration for a character in one of my books then that person should take it as a supreme compliment. It means that I think they are fascinating enough to write about! :-) (less)

I love creating and sharing characters I love (yes, even the naughty ones) with readers and then having them share their reactions with me. And, of course, there's nothing better than having a reader tell you how much they enjoy a particular character. Makes my day!(less)
