4+ for Isle Royale! ;D

http://www.syriasays.com/

I was intrigued that Syria's favorite character was my villain, the bootlegger Jean LeBeck. He was definitely the most fun to write. Anybody else fall in love with their villains? I know that actors love to play bad guys, but do writers love to write them? I know I sure do.

Thanks, Syria!

I love writing the bad guys too :)

Excellent review and I agree I prefer writing the baddies. ;)
I try to make my villains well-rounded, with believable motivations you can relate to, even if you're appalled at their actions. That just seems so much more interesting to me. The struggle, though, is to make sure the villain doesn't overshadow the protagonist. It's the epic battle of good vs. evil, right in the author's head! Hmmm... I feel a blog post coming on.
