- I’m busy writing all the books! But I’ll be sure to let you know on this page when I have an upcoming booksigning.
- I love to do book clubs! Contact me if you want me to show up at your club via Zoom or, if you’re local, in person (I’m from Northeastern Ohio). Cost is: just purchase the book you want me to chat about. ☺️ (Minimum: ten people.)
- I’ll be giving a talk to beginning writers as part of The Cuyahoga County Public Library system’s day-long writing conference, The 2022 Cleveland Rocks Writing Conference, on Saturday, August 13, 2022. This event will take place from 9:00am-4:30pm at the William N. Skirball Writer’s Center located at the CCPL South Euclid-Lyndhurst branch. Registration opens July 1st and it is FREE. There will be a book signing at 12:30-1:30.
Come meet some wonderful Northeast Ohio writers and learn more about the Great Lakes Writers Association.
Here’s what my talk is about:
Diving Into Writing a Romance
Do you love romance? After reading one, do you close the book, heave a sigh, and ask yourself how the author worked that special magic? This talk is geared for the beginning writer with a burning desire to try her/his hand at writing a romance and will focus on how on earth to begin. We will discuss developing an idea, how to set up your story with lots of conflict and tension, the ups and downs of plot structure, and the critical importance of the first chapter. It is specifically focused on romance but also can also be helpful to anyone plotting a fiction book.
