When I was invited to blog at Killer Characters as one of my characters, I had a hard time deciding which to choose. I decided on Violet Dupree, the vampire owner of Blood and Velvet, because I thought I'd never, ever write a book about her. She simply wasn't heroine material.
My daughter said, "You may change your mind when you get into her head," and she was right. Violet just may have a book in her after all.
Do your characters ever surprise you like that? If so, stop by and tell me about it. :)
