I've always had difficulties with female characters.
John le Carre
When I look at female characters, I want to recognize myself in them: my trials, my tribulations as a mother, as a lover, as a daughter.
The fact that my female characters have strong personalities but are also physically attractive probably reflects the women I've known in my life.
I don't try and write strong female characters or strong male characters, I just try and write, hopefully, strong characters and sometimes they happen to be female.

Most mainstream male fiction is littered with heroines, and female characters are basically so great, you want to fall in love with them.
