Could you tell us about your character building process specifically regarding Sloane’s family?
In approaching this story, I knew that I wanted Sloane to have a close family unit. In shaping this family, I started with a sense of who Sloane is as a person- someone who cares for her loved ones deeply, but maybe has a harder time connecting with her peers. With that in mind, I wanted Sloane to have a sibling, but one with a bit of an age difference. Laney, who is nine years younger, is someone Sloane is able to interact with and relate to in a different way.
Sloane’s father was a really fun character to write. I wanted Sloane to have a strong relationship with her dad. I think she and her father share a sense of humor, and they both have passionate personalities, and get swept up in new pursits easily. I thought of Sloane’s mom as someone who serves as the backbone for the family- the voice of reason, and a counter-weight to Sloane’s father.
With all of this in mind, the characters really seemed to take a life of their own when I was writing!
