Specific people would be the P.C. and Kirsten Cast duo because its the first novel I read with multiple POV. Also, Tite Kubo the creator of Bleach because he has a similar character creation process where he listens to music to help develop his characters.
And this is also where I give a sappy shout out to my fiance. He writes a comic here on Tapas called Mortimer's Clinic and really pushed me into actualizing my story. Without him it would all be in my head still and I wouldn't have posted it here on Tapas.
