From Katniss Everdeen to Tyrion Lannister, James Bond to Lieutenant Dan (and maybe a few more!), Ron Collins brings his unique perspective built through thirty years of experience to examining some of the most iconic characters ever presented on the page. Along the way he helps writers build toolboxes they can use to create their own dazzling and memorable characters — all done with a personal touch illuminated by a life spent searching for characters that matter.

“Ron Collins covers the spectrum with clear prose, compelling characters and settings, and a bright imagination.”

Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of ETERNITY’S MIND
