I’ve presented on the topic of using psychology to help writers create characters several times at various writer gatherings.  Now, at last, I’ve put it in a book!  The Psychology Workbook for Writers: Tools for Creating Realistic Characters and Conflict in Fiction covers various elements of psychology/counselling theory as they can be applied to writing, shows examples from novels and movies, then has worksheets to translate this into action – one to develop characters and one to develop story.

If you’re a writer, check it out.
