6 Live Online Master Classes

In each class, held Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, I cover the key elements that create a compelling novel — and that all agents and publishers look for in a manuscript. These include maximizing the power of Deep Character, crafting winning story structure, writing dynamic dialogue, creating turning points, mastering POV (point-of-view), and developing your unique prose “voice”. Plus, I’ll give you essential tips about getting published. Each class provides lots of time for on-the-spot coaching with Q&A.

Priority opportunity to purchase my evaluation of 30 pages of your writing

That Yes, you can do this!


The Novel Writing Master Classes are right for you if:

  • You struggle to find time to write while juggling work and family commitments, so you’d benefit from a focused program to keep you on track

  • Your inner perfectionist won’t let you stop micro-editing and move forward
  • You want to work with a pro to identify and improve possible weaknesses in your writing
  • You feel energized by connecting with others who are as serious about writing as you are
