Guest Post: Characters in Cinder and Ella by Melissa Melon

Today I have Melissa Lemon, the author of Cinder And Ella. She talked about the characters of her books.


If all of the characters in my book were here with me right now, I would be having a very emotional moment. The sight of Weston and Adela would cause my heart to ache, the prince would make me feel like worms were crawling all over my skin, Katrina would annoy me by hogging the bathroom and I’d be irate whenever Beatrice threw something in my direction.

But not to worry: Cinder would bring me an ice-cold lemonade, clean my kitchen, mop, dust, vacuum, take care of my kids, and finish writing this blog post. She is wonderful like that. And Ella, where are you Ella?

“I’m right here.”

Oh, sorry. And Ella would keep me laughing.

Writing Cinder and Ella had its emotional moments, but mostly it was like spending time with my very best of imaginary friends. I hope that someday you get to know them, too.

(And none of this would have happened anyway because I’m sure we would have had to call an ambulance when Tanner fell down the stairs.)
