This review is from: Bullies, Bastards And Bitches: How To Write The Bad Guys Of Fiction (Paperback)
As a fantasy author, I learned a lot about writing villains. I was in the middle of writing my sequel, “My Undead Mother-in-law” and it ended up much better (according to early readers; it’s not out until July 2017).

Besides villains, Ms. Morrell also covers dark heroes, anti-heroes, sympathetic villains, likable bad guys, neutral characters and truly wicked ones. She has a chapter on psychopaths and sociopaths, too, providing definitions and examples of each. She goes further, giving resources the reader can pursue to understand the psychology of criminals.

Indeed, the many examples she cites of heroes, lovable bad guys, and villains from contemporary culture, fiction, and movies, are probably the best feature of the book. I recommend this book for anyone interested in writing or learning to write.
