Today I’m doing a guest blog on W. Lynn Chantale’s blog.

I hope you’ll go there and see how I used Taylor Swift as an inspiration for some of the qualities I created in Kate O’Donnell, the protagonist in my novel Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series).

I will also be talking about the qualities that make your fictional characters believable, interesting and life-like in my online creative writing class Simply Creating Fictional Characters which starts on February 1st.

To find out more about the class and register, please go to my website and click on Class and Creative Writing.

Hope to see you there.
