WORKSHOP: MICHAEL ROBOTHAM - COMPELLING CHARACTERS

β€œIt begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.” – William Faulkner. The very best crime fiction is as character driven as it is plot driven. Any writer can be full of clever ideas, unique situations and plot twists and still mess up a book but, with beautifully drawn, believable characters, the most simple and straightforward story can turn into gold. Internationally renowned crime writer Michael Robotham explains how.
