Voice - The Secret Power of Great Writing by James Scott Bell This book is a great addition for any author's library. It is about finding the “voice” for your characters. Getting into the mind of your characters. Feel their emotions...such as anger. What ticks your character off? Find that trigger and write it down. He gives many examples from authors past and present on how the voices of their characters came to life. The author goes through the many genres and how the voices present themselves.
