¬†It’s often the little things. The nuances that make or break a scene, or the believability of a character’s actions.

That was my problem – I had a character that was receiving the worst news possible from an officer at her door. The worst a mother could hear. And I pulled from my own feelings as a mother – but I had no way to know what I really would feel in such a situation, what *real* mothers do and say. Sgt. Nicodemus’ first hand experiences helped me craft the scene to fit in with both reality and the emotional experience I was trying for.

Thanks for that insider view!
