Smashwords Interview

Is Harry Cram based on any particular person?
Harry cram is of course a fictitious character, but yes many of his traits are based upon people I have come across during my life. It is important that people reading the book can picture the characters and their traits.
How do you decide to describe the appearance of someone like Harry Cram, are there elements of other people rolled into the character and how do you go about actually creating the character?
With all my characters I list each person separately in a spreadsheet and complete their individual traits, appearance and attitudes combined from people I have known and my wild imagination, eg size, weight, colour of hair, religion, marital status etc
This is the first step in the process, even before writing the manuscript.
