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.

Why yes, I have yet another blog up! "Hot trends may come and go, but for some readers, nothing takes the place of great historical fiction. It can explore any period, from ancient – even prehistoric – times, to recent decades (that’s right, your childhood is now historical). The best books let readers explore a fascinating time in the past, through a character who appeals to modern tastes."

Once in a while, a complete story may come to you. But often writers start with an idea that needs development. Here are some ways you can figure out the rest of the story.

I'm sharing tips on making sure you're writing for the right age at The Children's Writer's Guild​ http://www.childrenswritersguild.com/are-you-writing-for-the-right-age/
<p>Writing for children is different from writing for adults in a few important ways. One issue is the need to consider reading level. </p>

On Editing: "For many writers, a new manuscript is their “baby.” You love it, and it may be hard to think of it as anything less than perfect. But you wouldn’t send your newborn baby out into the world and expect it to survive on its own. You help your children grow up, teaching them, gently correcting misbehavior, and helping them express their wonderful selves. Editing a manuscript is similar."

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.
