Story
Tagline
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 tweet irregularly as@Kris_Bock.

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

Jan. 1-31 is #STORYSTORM with Tara Lazar. Formerly known as #PiBoIdMo, the challenge is to come up with one new story idea each day of the month. How are you doing?

Some writers have no trouble finding ideas, and only need to find enough time to tackle them all. But a couple members of my critique group have wondered what to write next. Sometimes the wellspring of ideas seems empty.

To brainstorm new ideas, sit down with a few sheets of paper and ....

#Diversity and How the Past Inspires Us Today, with Chris Eboch
The Power of Diversity

Recent months have seen an increase in bullying and racism in schools. Children, of course, reflect what they see in the world around them. We can mourn what’s happening, and we can fight it in a variety of ways, through civic action, leading by example, discussing issues with our own children and students, instituting anti-bullying policies at local schools, and so forth.

Writers, teachers, and librarians also have a special tool in books.

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.
