Author Shorts Question 5: What or who do your characters look like?

author shorts2I’ve asked a variety of authors— from horror to romance to comedy to non-fiction—to answer a few questions that I pose. Of course, I love a twist. All answers had to be no more than two sentences. Brevity presents a greater challenge.

For me the process was delightful as well as insightful. I love that authors can express our personalities and style in so few words. Just check out the varied responses to the first question!

The fifth question: Do you look at photos or imagine someone in particular when you describe a character?

“I’m using my imagination, for the most part; men I’ve seen or women’s particulars that I have looked at and admired for myself or on myself. Then I throw them all into one, delicious package.”

“At the start of a story, I already have a clear description in my head of my lead characters. I do like to search for potential cover images for eye candy inspiration though.”

“Some of my characters are based on people I’ve known, or on myself, but most of them just introduce themselves to me.”
