- a free email course -

When you think back on your favourite books, what springs to mind?

For me, it's the characters.  People like Henry and Clare, Nymphadora Tonks, and Magwitch live large in my mind long after I've read the final words of the final page.

Over the years, I've developed strategies to get to know my characters from the inside out while having fun along the way.  Now I want to share those strategies with you.

Get your pen and paper ready!  It's time to build a truly epic character foundation.
