    This was SO helpful! I just introduced a parent character into my novel, and since she’s the catalyst for my MC’s arc, I wanted to make her as real as possible. These tips were exactly what I needed, and I can’t wait to start deepening the parents in my stories. Definitely coming back to this podcast. 😉 Thank you!
