Wanda Walker has been writing since she was eight years old, and she hasn’t stopped since. She received her B.A. in English Writing and Studio Arts from the University of Pittsburgh. When she’s not writing, she’s an artist, daydreamer, and chronic internet surfer. Sometimes she leaves the house, but only when her refrigerator is empty.
Do you base any of your characters on real life people?
No. Definitely not. I know maybe eight people on a really close basis, which includes the five people in my immediate family. If I only based my characters on real life people, I'd have to recycle the same eight, and they wouldn't be interesting at all. I create characters based on who I would like to know in real life but don't have the cojones to ever seek out.
