Character building: Terry Brooks interview

 Terry Brooks.  I'm sure this name is popular and you may have read his books.  So what is it about characters?  How and why do authors choose them for the story?

One of the top fantasy writers of our time who is up there with Tolkien.   As a young aspiring writer, and I was in my teens, I wrote to this author.  Surprisingly he wrote back, 


and it was often for about five years.  I've been to the conventions and he is a very good person.  For those who couldn't afford the $100 ticket, he would go to one of the local churches to speak to a crowd.  I wanted to learn from the best.   Character development and how this top author does it.  Are writers born or made?
