New Classes Available

I'm teaching two courses starting on Thursday (8/26), and I hope you'll join me for one--or both! Here's the info.


8/26/10 - 10/7/10

Does a deep love story live in your soul? Could you join the ranks of the Bronte sisters, Nora Roberts, Judith McNaught, Danielle Steele, or Nicholas Sparks? Discover your romantic writing roots while you familiarize yourself with the specific factors that create a successful romance story.

Essentials of Romance Writing



8/26/10 - 10/7/10

Dialogue may be the most important characterization - but most difficult to master - tool at a fiction writer's disposal. Stiff, unnatural or overdone dialogue will doom the liveliest characters or stall an exciting plot. Effective dialogue propels your characters and story off the page, deep into the imagination of your reader.

In this workshop, you will gain a thorough understanding of effective dialogue in fiction, including the functions of dialogue to develop characters, expose motives, reveal setting, create tension and suspense, speed up scene and more.

Abolish your fear of dialogue and access your story's unique voice!

Hope to see you there!
