As my bio says, I love to talk writing with anyone and everyone! This week, it's Brenda's Book Beat on Facebook


BBB: Do you find them (your characters) helpful or distracting?

EH: Mostly I find them helpful, but more than once I’ve had to do a lot of rewriting because what I’d written just didn’t ring true for the characters once I got to know them. Just once, I’d like to start a book knowing the people I’m writing about inside out, but it never seems to happen that way.
