I love delving into the science behind stories and sometimes, there's nothing more satisfying than getting to know a new character! When I was younger, I always loved creating new characters on The Sims and imagining their lives, their homes, and their jobs - and that's a passion that has never left me.

So, when author Eli Allison got in touch about sharing a character bio for Onion, the main character from his speculative fiction novel Sour Fruit, I couldn't resist the chance to help breathe life into her character!
