Which of the characters in your books is your favorite?

It’s impossible for me to choose my favorite character! I love almost all of them in their own ways. But the gargoyle from the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series is special to me because he first turned up in a story I wrote when I was a teenager. That story was never published, but the gargoyle insisted on reappearing many years later in my book Magic Marks the Spot, and I’m glad he did.
