Maurice was originally NOT intended to be one of the main characters in the books. I might have mentioned this before but it bears repeating. His only purpose was to pop in and out of the story from time to time, offering advice as Vanessa’s good-looking, but oversexed childhood friend and current roommate. That was my original story for him, no more or less. Layers were to be added later as the series went on, but once he started ‘talking’ to me while penning Miss Independent, I couldn’t ignore his voice. It was loud. It was determined. It was one of the most interesting ones I had listened to. And I realized early on that he wasn’t going to let me continue on what I wanted until I sat back and listened to what he had to tell me.
Did making him a bigger character than intended turn out for the best?
