“If you like someone, you meet them repeatedly and learn more about them. The same should work for a recurring hero, such as Alex Morgan. His character develops across the books, not all at once.”
“Every woman I thought was a brilliant bad ass, innovative and fearless, finds her way into my characters, male or female.”
“I pinch myself every day to believe I earn money writing and selling stories. I feel so lucky. When I was a kid, I wanted to write stories for a living. Now I do it.”
