Whether it’s Katniss Everdeen and Harry Potter or homegrown heroes like Ellie Linton and Sabriel, we all have our favourite characters. We enter their worlds at book one, and begin a relationship that can last many years. When a book ends, we count the days until we can meet them again and pick up where we left off. But how challenging is it for writers to take characters across multiple books? Join authors James Bradley, Amie Kaufman, Garth Nix and Lynette Noni to find out. With Catriona Feeney.
