Goodreads asked Laurie LeClair:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Laurie LeClair I get to meet these amazing characters! No, seriously. I swear they're real and I'm sure to pass them on the street one day. I love when characters speak to me. I do see them in my mind and hear them in my ear. And I'm the lucky one who gets to bring them to life on the page for everyone else to read. Also, I get to meet and hear from readers who love my characters, too, and for all different reasons. I love when readers tell me one of my characters touched their heart. So sweet and humbling...
