I like characters to explain why do you do the things you do?

Most authors are avid readers too. As a reader I like the book to explain why characters do the things they do? I like to know the who, what, why, when, and where? I can relate to a character better if I know their background.

I guess that’s why even as a kid I was never a big fan of the splash/blood/gut spilling horror movies. Most made no sense to me. Most were not like “Frankenstein” where Mary Shelly tells the background of the Dr.Frankenstein, the bodies he used, the helpers and all. She leaves no stones unturned for inquiring minds like mines.

I always wanted to know why were the monster killing people? What grievance did it have? Was it simply evil? My siblings used to say ‘shut up and watch the movie’ or call our parents when I refused to stop asking questions. (LOL!)

I wanted to know where the creature crawling out the water come from? Was it an ill-formed mermaid, a kraken or what?

However as a writer, my own curiosity comes back to bite me in the hiney. LOL! Now, I’m on the production end of the spectrum and must answer these questions.

This books goes into further depths of the early life of the main character of the UnHoly Pursuit Saga: Ana BuFaye. I tries to add background to my characters to give readers a fuller understanding as to who they are and why they do the things they do.

This book was written to show Ana BuFaye’s reasons for doing what you will read about in the big books.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I do too. I like to know how a character arrived at the point of kicking someone door in. I hate books that start out with this kind of action giving you no clue as to why the person is doing whatever they are doing.
