Brittany asked Deborah Harkness:

I have heard some authors who write a series mention (or have even shown readers) that they have notes and material about the world and characters they created that they never used in the series for one reason or another. Do you have material like this?

Deborah Harkness of course. I know much more about the characters than could fit in the books. That's what gives the characters depth and authenticity, I think.
