Writing Meme, Day 5

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

My youngest major character is Mikayla Morgan, who is six years old at the beginning of Lane’s Girl.  My oldest major character is… um… I’m not really sure.  Once they become old enough I stop worrying about ages so much.  Maybe Henry, from Phooka Tales, although he’s not really that old (in his late fifties/early sixties).  Meara’s mother, Amanda, is probably somewhere in her sixties as well.  There will be a character in TSP who is very old, but I haven’t really storylined him yet, so in effect he doesn’t really exist yet.

Yeah, I guess I don’t write about a lot of older characters.  They either die young (Lane and Rebecca), or their story fades away into The End well before they are old.

As far as youngest in terms of when I found them, that would be the cast of TSP: Neona, Sean, and Alicia (Sean the youngest of the three, because I found Nea and Ali first).  My oldest original fiction character is Kindra, which is probably why I love her so much.  She’s been around for a long time.

But my oldest character ever would be Pone – she’s almost as old as I am!
