Today RT convention attendees got a bit of insight on the process that authors Jeaniene Frost, Charlaine Harris and Nalini Singh go through as they write some of the most popular paranormal series on the market. In the Paranormal Chat this afternoon these genre headliners let us inside of their worlds (both the fictional and real ones) and, of course, talked about what readers can expect next!
The discussion started off quickly, as the authors spoke about their favorite character transformation over the course of their series. Frost said she has been very pleased at the changes in her “Wicked Witch-y” character Justina. While for Harris, it is Sookie who has changed the most as she has really come into her own despite the enormous paranormal responsibilities piled onto her young shoulders. And Singh said it was Nikita, Sascha’s mother, who has the most interesting character development because we still don’t know Nikita's motivations for rejecting her daughter.
No chat between these three ladies would be complete without discussing those fanged heroes and heroines we all love so much. The authors all talked a bit about why they chose to write series about relationships with younger women and not just older men, but much, much, much older men.
