As writers we have the opportunity to meet some of the people who give us ideas for our stories. It's even better if we can talk to them on the phone or in person. I have had the opportunity to attend churches and weddings with Amish folks and Mennonite as well. I admire their devotion to spend three or four hours each Sunday in worship. The Cappella singing lifts one's spirits and goes on for at least an hour.

After working with the homeless I decided to write a blog about their situations. Hearing their stories opened eyes. Making the less fortunate heard helped people see the other side, that many don't have the opportunities most of us do. Through time more people have come to see their plight and ask how they can help, and in turn help them by growing back into society.

What have you learned while creating characters in your books?
