Pam asked Lynsay Sands:

How do you decide on names for your characters? Does the story dictate the names you use? Does a name ever inspire a character?

Lynsay Sands I research names a lot, looking for ones I like, or ones with meanings that will be useful or pertinent to the story. And yes, I've actually come across names that inspire characters.
