Random Ramblings #6
Carrying on from a couple weeks ago, I again want to stick to the topic of my characters. I want to share with you their bios. I have seen a lot of people do these for their own characters, although those are much more popular books than mine, but you have to start somewhere right?
Getting to know the characters off the page is still just as important as knowing them on the page. So, I have put together some information, some may already be obvious if you have read my books but I am hoping it's not. If you have any questions about my characters, post them below or on social media and I will get an answer for you.
