Characters in Real Life and Fiction

Today over at the KIDLIT CENTRAL blog I’ve posted an entry about “Characters & Perspective.” I take a couple of my characters along for an airplane ride. Monsters don’t necessarily travel well.

Where do authors get ideas for their fictional characters? From real life, of course. We mix and match and makeup stuff as we go along to create just the right characters for each story. 
But when an author like me knows such a vibrant real life character like Lucy– the Glamour Dog, then I  don’t have to add much fictional flair to fashion a fun character. 
Take a look at this picture of Lucy after she decided to try Pink Bubble Gum lip gloss.
She’s dog-gone adorable!
