Building Sammy’s character — Sammy and the San Juan Express

As a writer, I’m constantly challenged to add to my character descriptions. In my middle grade/young adult novel series, Sammy and the San Juan ExpressI constantly search for ways to define the protagonist (hero), Sammy. Recently a dear friend and editor, Vera Haddan, reminded me of this quote from Maya Angelou that helped me add to Sammy’s identity. This is what I hope Sammy does in her adventures,  Sales the Deal,  Presidential Bear, and the upcoming Alpha She Wolf.
