Lucy asked Miranda Kenneally:

How do you decide which characters you want to write about?

Miranda Kenneally Hi Lucy - This is a tough question! I pick a sport or activity first, e.g. soccer or music. In terms of figuring out who my character is, I generally just sit down and start writing about random memories from my childhood. Somewhere along the way, I'll start writing in a new person's voice and just see where it goes. When developing a love interest, I have my main character start bantering with a guy and see what sort of tension develops. Sometimes they have chemistry, sometimes they don't. If they don't, I start over with a new guy.

Thanks for your question,
