Where Do Our (Fictional) Characters Come From?

My wife has said, more than once, that the main character in my Dancing Priest novels is an idealized version of me. The first time she said it, I disagreed. There were some things I shared with that character, but I never planned to write about making an idealized version of me.

After considering it, I thought, well, maybe. I thought about it some more, and I reverted to my original thought. Nope, he’s not me. 

Not one of the characters across my four novels are disguised versions of real people. Instead, they are composites of people and experiences.
