Romance Weekly's Authors answer questions about serious and non-so-serious aspects of writing. Enjoy! This week the questions come from Kate Robbins!
1. How much of yourself do you write into your characters? Or do you write characters completely opposite to you?
None are completely the current me but each character has some aspect of me. Even the villains or antagonists have some trait of mine. Well, except for the ghost I'm currently writing.
2. Has your writing helped you see events in your own life clearer?
When I started writing, I accessed issues I had locked away. Immersing myself in the scene and the heroine's viewpoint, I realized I had held resentments. Dredging up negative emotions and pouring them into my characters helps me release them.
3. Have you written a character with more of your personal characteristics than any other? What are they?
All of my heroines are partially me. The one character who is most me is Caitlyn from my paranormal romance which is on the back burner. She is strong, independent and sensitive. She's way nicer than I am, not nearly as sarcastic. She's like the zen me. Hopefully soon I can share her with the world.
Next on this blog hop is Leslie Hachtel, author of historical romances. Drop in to discover if her sexy heroines are borne from her personality.
