Characters: Vena Remontar

When I originally conceived and outlined the story of Princess of Amathar, the character of Vena Remontar didn't exist.  She came into being as I was writing, another minor character that crosses paths with our hero.  The problem came along later.  As I was writing her, I fell in love with her.  That presented me with an entirely different resolution to the story than I had originally planned, but hers remained a small part.  When I revised the book, the one part that was expanded was the central point in the city of Amathar with Alexander and Vena.  Looking back years later, I'm very glad that I was swayed from my original tale by this beautiful alien princess.
