I wanted to create a heroine that was flawed. I wanted her to be a real person. She's selfish, she's childish, she's immature and because I'm doing a three-book arc I really played that up in the first book. I wanted the reader to be annoyed with her at times.

I always tell myself that when you're playing a character, pretend they're on trial and you're giving the best witness of their life.

You want to give 100 percent of what they're worth and what they deserve as people.
