Where did Mara of the Acoma come from?

From: Raymond E. Feist

VERY different, or do I have to draw you a map?

And I created Mara of the Acoma, not Janny.  She was my character before I ever met Janny.

Janny co-created the world and the story line, but I came up with Mara and I knew exactly what she was going to be doing from start to finish in terms of her personal growth before I knew who Janny Wurts was.

As for a "glimpse" of a strong woman character and their disappearing, I have no idea what you're talking about.

Characters like Briana, Margarat, and Miranda are far from "glimpses."

This is a male dominated cluture,  and I don't write to other people's

Best, R.E.F.
