Fun fact: I fall in love with faces. I’ll often be watching a TV show or movie, surfing social media, or just living life and see an interesting face. I take a mental snapshot and who knows? Someday that person populates one of the anonymous little towns of my books.
Classic example- The gap-toothed orchid thief John LaRoche (Chris Cooper) in Adaptation in 2002 became the grizzled bass-player turned assassin Abel Jackson in #JacksonFalls
Two of my characters in #Unrequited even share the names of the long lost friends for whom they are named.
More recent example- The three Duclair sisters of #FionasRules are an amalgam of five real life friends, celebrities and fictional characters.
The moral of the story: As long as there are interesting faces in the world, I’ll have more books to write.
