Gary's interview contains that gem of advice to all fiction writers -- character comes first. Since I began writing Black Horse Westerns in 1992, I have always started out with a written story outline preceded -- and this is the important bit -- by eight or nine lines about each of the principal six or seven principal characters in the planned story. As Gary says, you have to know their likes and dislikes, what has made them the way they are, what will motivate them. The colors of their eyes and hair aren't included, but you should know them!

Great interview, can't wait to read the book.

Excellent interview, Gary - I liked the idea of a showdown on Taff Street.
