Welcome Authors! It’s wonderful to have you back for another round.

Now the question is: Who’s your favorite character? (can be yours or someone else’s)

Aubrie Dionne: Has to be Jane Eyre. I love how she sticks to her beliefs even when the handsome Mr. Rochester is pleading with her to stay with him. She's small like me, but she doesn't let her size get in the way. She had such a difficult life, yet she's so kind to others...there are so many reasons why Jane Eyre is my favorite character!

Jade Varden: Ever written? Scarlett O’Hara, easily. She’s very flawed, but there’s a lot about her to admire, too. Scarlett’s one of those characters you love and hate and root for and root against all at the same time.  

Karina Kantas: My favorite character in Huntress is my MC Sofi. She strong willed, tough, goes through a lot of conflicts. She's a survivor.  

Pat Andres: My favorite characters in fiction are strong women who didn't know they were strong until tested.  

Vicki Batman: I would say Stephanie Plum. I love her madcap adventures and wouldn't mind having Joe Morelli one bit. I truly fell in love with Janet's humorous writing.
