Pull up a keyboard and stay a while. I’m a Colorado Springs wife, mom and writer. I’m fluent in tortilla making and running from bears. My YA is represented by Rachel Ekstrom of the Irene Goodman Agency and I'm working on an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University.

One thing I learned at my recent MFA residency is that I'm not mean enough to my characters. I put them in these incredible situations that they're totally ill-prepared for and have them come out unscathed.
Well, no more. People are getting hurt in my books.
What about you? Are you too kind to your characters?
