Character Inspiration

A lot of the stories I write are interracial romances.  And often, I take my leading men and women right from American pop culture.  But, lately, I find myself getting a little bit broader.  Thanks Netflix!

I have absolutely fallen in love with Korean romantic comedies.  My latest crush is Lee Dong-Wook.  I watched Perfect Couple, a romantic comedy with Lee Dong-Wook and Hyun Young.  The movie reminded me of light funny chick lit.

As I work on the hero for my next piece, I have to admit that many of his quirks will be drawn from Lee.

For any of the other authors out there, where do you get your character inspiration for your novels (interracial or not?)  Do you draw from your own life and experiences?
