The best thing about being a writer, to me, is bringing a world to life from nothing. By my hand, new lands and people take on life. I love to watch the characters grow and progress through my series. I may have created them initially, but they take on their own life and steer me in the way the books end up going. If you are not a writer, it’s difficult to explain. You would think that an author has total control over his/her characters, and I do have some, but it’s the character’s reactions and decisions that create that fluidity in the best stories. And I love it when I am surprised by even my own characters reactions. I write much like a reader reads: waiting for the story to unfold, the only difference is that I hold the pen.
