Every Saturday I share some questions I receive from readers, bloggers and writers. Today’s question is:
Do you have any character pet peeves?
My biggest pet peeve is the too-good-to-be-true heroines. You know the type. The woman who does everything right, can make everyone love her, and has a bad reputation but didn’t do anything to earn it. What’s wrong with heroines who don’t get it right the first time? Give me a heroine who will always have opponents and can look at someone in the eye and say, “Yeah, I did do that, and I had fun while I was at it. Wanna make something out of it?”
