MAKING A MONSTER: TAKE YOUR VILLAINS FROM CLICHE TO UNFORGETTABLE
We all have a slumbering beast coiled just inside the cages of our chests. The trick to memorable antagonists? Waking that sleeping, amoral monster inside us.
But how does one gracefully unleash a murderer, a serial killer, a demon; how do we turn a downright contemptuous villain into a character the audience can’t help but secretly love?
Bestselling author Ania Ahlborn has a reputation for making her readers root for the darkest, most twisted characters in her genre. Her books—from supernatural horror to haunting thrillers—have been lauded by the likes of Publishers Weekly and the New York Times.
And in Making a Monster, she'll delve into the alchemy of the sympathetic bad guy.
