Where do characters come from?

They’re everywhere! They’re in your head, in your heart, next door to you, across the street, in the big city, or on the other side of the world, they are there.

Whether you catch them in your trusty sketchbook or put them in a jar just don’t let them disappear! Some characters will stay with you forever until you give them life and others are so fleeting you’ll forget the second you turn your attention elsewhere.

Below is a conversation I had with Elizabeth Mary Cummings, author of our new children’s book Rain Shaker. We talk about how our hero came to life for each of us.

Wait! Some goss!
