-Lynn Kostoff and Charlie Stella interview each other at Crime Culture:
In the early stages, I saw the characters simply as a group of people who each badly wanted something, and the contradictions weren’t planned out. They arose when the personalities and agendas of the characters collided. I tried to nudge and focus the contradictions more dramatically in each subsequent draft. The more the characters interacted and bounced off each other, the more they stayed true to who and what they were, and that’s what finally opened up the contradictions in them and hopefully made the characters more complex and human for readers.
