Q: Do you ever feel bad for what you put your characters through?
A: Not really. Under my pseudonym, Alexa Piper, I created a character once that seemed like a boring, two-dimensional villain, so I gave them a backstory and someone who loved them. That character became harder to dispatch, but dispatch them I did.
