Mystery Series: Character Evolution
We love the characters, whether they are private eyes in Paris or southern Cal or police on the Navajo Nation. We can’t wait for their next adventures. But how do authors keep our interest in characters who appear in book after book? Three bestselling authors of mystery series share how they develop characters and storylines that keep fans returning.
