On Choosing Characters

It has gotten to the point that when I meet someone I tell them I'm an author. Not because I want the attention, and not to sell books (usually). I tell them so they're prepared to find themselves in one of my novels.
Most of my characters have some basis in reality. At least in one way or another. I'll take traits, actions, or figures of speech and fit them into a novel.
Also, I think it is fair warning for them not to piss me off. After all, what better way to commit murder than in the pages of a book?


  1. I would love to be in a book whether it was something nice or not! So what will give me a better chance of being in one of your books being nice and charming or being a bit of a bastard?
