Robert Peecher, author and journalist, has published an interview with me on his blog.
Q. When you started writing did you know Steve Dancy’s character, or did he develop for you through the telling of the story?
Best: I knew his character from the start, but that said, every character must grow or the story will become stale. By the fourth book, he is a much more mature character than at the beginning of the series. I had nothing to do with it. He learned and grew as he ventured around the frontier and I scribbled down what he did and how he did it.
