Through Others' Eyes

As a writer, I often step back mentally to study my characters and to see them afresh, particularly when I'm writing scenes that bring out different and unexpected facets of their personalities. In my humble authorly opinion, these reevaluations deepens each character and brings the whole story to life.

Readers build upon this process by bringing their own imaginations to the stories (thank you!) and their unique views of the series' characters often reveal aspects I haven't recognized. Therefore, I'm always delighted and curious when readers send their own depictions of various characters from my stories. Here are a few fun and amazing works contributed by Rebeka Borshevsky, and Aaron Thorup.
Rebeka Borshevsky: Characters from PROPHET.

From PROPHET: Ela and Kien

Aaron Thorup: Scythe guarding Tzana

Thanks, Rebeka and Aaron!
Readers, do you enjoy "picturing" favorite fictional characters?

Aww, thanks so much for the kind words, RJ! And I guess it's sort of obvious that I love envisioning characters as I read. ;)
