writing exciting stories for all ages
Introduction
I write a variety of genres. My novels for ages 9+ include The Eyes of Pharaoh, an ancient Egyptian mystery; The Well of Sacrifice, a Mayan adventure; and the Haunted series: The Ghost on the Stairs, The Riverboat Phantom, and The Knight in the Shadows. Read samples at www.chriseboch.com

I also write for adults as Kris Bock. In Whispers in the Dark, a young archaeologist stumbles into danger as mysteries unfold among ancient Southwest ruins. What We Found is a mystery with strong romantic elements about a young woman who finds a murder victim in the woods. Rattled is romantic suspense featuring a treasure hunting adventure in New Mexico. Read excerpts at www.krisbock.com.

I also have a critique business and teach writing workshops online and in person. My book Advanced Plotting helps writers improve their plots.

On my blog, I share another excerpt from You Can Write for Children: How to Write Great Stories, Articles, and Books for Kids and Teenagers: The Parts of a Story or Article for Children. "If “beginning, middle, and end” doesn’t really help you, here’s another way to think of story structure. A story has four main parts: situation, complications, climax, and resolution. You need all of them to make your story http://chriseboch.blogspot.com/2015/06/parts-of-story.html #writetip #kidlit #writerWednesday

Due to a most unfortunate accident, which has necessitated
my being off the writing scene for several months, I have had to shelve –
temporarily – my MG historical faction on the Second World War in Scotland. When I was able to begin reading once more, my c...

On my Southwest Armchair Traveler blog, I review Outlaws & Outcasts: The Lost Cemetery of Las Vegas, NM: "Most southwestern treasure stories involve people searching for a known treasure that has been lost. This book is something different – an unknown cemetery was accidentally and unexpectedly found. The items may only be considered treasure to archaeologists, but it's still fascinating to think about what else might be hidden under seemingly empty land."

Once you have your idea, it’s time to develop it into an article, short story, or longer project. ... You don’t have to develop a formal, detailed outline, but a few ideas about what you want to say, and where you want the story to go, can help give you direction.

'People often ask writers, “Where do you find your ideas?” But for a writer, the more important question is, “What do I do with my idea?”'

"Think all honey is the same? A glance at the honey I picked up at Chama Bee Honey shows otherwise. The strawberry-rhubarb is a dark amber, the wild blackberry a few shades lighter. The cat’s claw/mesquite is pale, creamy, and opaque. The source of the pollen makes the difference. And bees make the honey."

“Camie’s Green Chile Stew” – inspired by a character in my treasure hunting series (The Mad Monk's Treasure, The Dead Man's Treasure) – is great for groups because everyone gets to adapt their own bowl to their own taste.

Doctors may be good but the overall experience was terrible. They didn't have any information from our PCP. We had to come back to see a different doctor, because the first one wasn't the right expert. Then they didn't handle the insurance billing properly, and multiple calls have resulted in no paperwork being sent to insurance.
