Deana asked Andrew Hobson:

Do you have all the characters mapped out before you start or do you find inspiration creates more as you go along?

Andrew Hobson With the Hypogeum I started with a character, Alma and her starting point in my head which formed the basis of chapter one. Didn't know what to do with her for months.

The remaining characters and plot grew organically. Basically I didn't know what I was going to write until I wrote it, the story just seemed to flow along with the character building.

My next work is different. I am planning ahead with The Wolven Rose and think long and hard about each chapter before ever touching the keyboard.
