Ed Ireland asked Cheryl Matthynssens:

Have you ever felt the need to kill off a character and if so, how did it make you feel?

Cheryl Matthynssens So far the characters that I have killed off have been planned. I am still a fairly new author to independent publishing so I am sure this will change.

However, in The Blackguard, I ran into an opposite problem. I mapped a character that was supposed to be a villain. However, as I began to write him, I liked him so much that the story shifted and a different man rose to the top as the villain of the story. I won't say which character as I do not want to spoil the story.
