My first published novel will be a Science Fiction Romance, but I have a few Paranormal Romances in the works as well.
That’s a very difficult question for me as a pantser. My characters tend to evolve over the course of writing that the hard part is going back to the beginning when editing and adding the information needed. Usually I have an idea of what type of job the person needs to fill and then work backwards from there. I try and be inclusive when writing and make a diverse group to pull from that don’t represent stereotypes. In Unexpected Revival, one of the hardest parts of my novel was creating characters that worked together and didn’t reflect only one race, ethnicity, sex, and orientation. With that strong base, the other novels characters were easier to develop.
