I’m Florence Witkop and I’m an author and have been one for many years because I love stories and the characters that people them. If you, too, enjoy reading about the sometimes amazing situations people find themselves in — and how they get through those situations and not only survive, but thrive — then check out my books.
My favorite genres are science fiction and paranormal so my books often combine the two. My stories are always clean and almost always contain at least a touch of romance.
And all my books end happily. Always. You can come after me if that’s wrong, but it’ll never happen.
Check out the covers below to see some of my stories. All are available on Amazon. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Are there any tips on writing a very large cast of characters, all with unique and rounded personalities?
There’s something in writing called ‘the rule of three.’ It goes like this:
Few writers are good enough and few readers perceptive enough to keep track of more than three characters at a time. So if you have more than that — especially if you have a large cast of characters — group them into no more than three groups. That way you and your readers can keep track of them.
Three. Just three. No more than three individuals or three groups of individuals per scene.
Of course, in those scenes with three or fewer characters, you can forget the grouping and concentrate on the individuals. And that’s when you can round them out with unique personalities.
