1. Who is your favorite character?
Soul Sister Ani
2. Why is he/she your favorite?
Ani is definitely my favorite character because she is so bold and strong. She does what she wants, when she wants. She’s fiercely loyal and will do anything for someone that would do anything for her.
3. How did you come to create him/her?
At first I was just writing her as a bold character but as I continued writing her I realized she was my alter ego. She does everything I wish I could do and….get away with it.
4. When did he/she first enter your mind?
She popped into my mind as soon as the story line did. I knew I wanted a strong female character in my story so Ani’s personality was born right away.
5. Where was he/she given life in the creative process?
Ani was given life at the very beginning of the story. Her sister Dana came later. She is such a fun character that at the beginning of the book I knew she would be a part of it right away.
6. What do like the most about him/her and what do you dislike the most about him/her?
I love how strong Ani is and how she is not afraid to do what needs to be done. The thing I dislike about her is she will get what she wants at any cost and that can get others in trouble sometimes. She definitely is an enigma!
