Hm. Quite a few of my characters wouldn't enjoy being talked about.Brendan Carroll said:I see that authors seem to have one thing in common: They love their characters ... Want to say something about your leading ladies, guys, creatures or whatever?
I can't say I 'love' them, because if I did I'd probably spoil them. My best creations are conflicted souls who go against their own inner nature because of forces beyond their control. A particular reader favorite is Lord Michael Essern, my hero Ryel's nemesis, whose powerful wysardry is enhanced by a demonic heritage he wants no part of; his brother, general of a queen's army, is likewise afflicted and driven to terrible acts that give him great anguish. I really enjoy writing those two.
