Many Chapters…Many Voices
Many chapters of the Will Wilder series were birthed in the corner of a coffee shop. The corner is the best place to work, since it can get loud at times. Once I travel to Perilous Falls, pounding away at the keyboard, I often hear the character’s voices in my imagination. Having been trained as an actor, I find myself involuntarily mouthing dialogue in the voice of the characters as I write. I literally play all the parts by the time I get to editing — doing my full “multiple personality” routine at the end of the day.
