A few years ago I wrote about how my son was angry with me when I killed off a character in The Voyage of the Minotaur. If you have read any of the books in Senta and the Steel Dragon, you know that major characters get killed off fairly regularly. Now, I’m in the process of finishing The Price of Magic, book 7 (8, if you count book 0) in the series. In this book several long-time characters meet their ends. One of these caused me more than a little grief. After reading the chapter, my wife cried inconsolably for more than an hour! Then she was angry at me all the next day! What’s a writer to do?
