Every story ever told participates in a universal pattern as words grow and expand into sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. What is left after the end of the story has the potential to transform not only the writer but all those who read the story as well.

Do you sometimes become so completely overwhelmed by all the work left to be done to your story that you walk away without writing? What motivates you to keep writing?

So thrilled to share my historical novel with you!
Set in the San Francisco Bay Area during the turbulent 1960s, Parallel Lives follows the destinies of two people—a mute girl and a reckless boy—who have nothing in common but their mutual fascination in their seemingly random meetings. Now, as adults, before they can set out on their own, first they each must find and confront the unforgettable and mysterious other.

A plot planner enables you to keep the larger picture of your story in full view as you concentrate on writing individual scenes. (from Writing Blockbuster Plots just out from Writers Digest!)

Awareness of all types of scenes allows you to strengthen the elements that may not come naturally or intuitively to you. Plot is made up of action. Learn the great action scenes at your disposal, like suspense and twister and escape, and you too will be writing Page-Turning plots!

Still confused by story concept. Flummoxed about theme for your novel, memoir, screenplay? Concept and theme made clear with Oscar nominated foreign film "Theeb"
