Judith C. Owens-Lalude, Joyce Kaye Gatschenberger, Stephen Murray, Tonya Todd and I discuss diverse characters in this episode. How important is it to have diverse characters in your writing? When is it necessary? Is it necessary at all? More than ever, there is a shift in the dimensions of the characters in today's novels. The world is no longer black and white. We talk about why and when to use diverse characters. Do all novels need diverse characters, or does it depend on the theme? I hope that we were able to bring a new understanding for what today's reader wants in the books they will be readiing.
