As a writer I like to pair unlikely characters together. Past stories have included couples as diverse as a Satanic Witch with a born-again Christian, to an anorexic woman with a Turkish man who likes curves. I take my characters and drop them into situations as far outside of their comfort zones as I can imagine them. This juxtaposition of extreme opposites creates the conflict that makes life so interesting and allows for the unique and unexpected to emerge.
