About This Class

This class will slowly and carefully walk a new novelist through the process of writing their first book. It is a class for everyone who has a story to tell and wants to learn how to do it. It is a step-by-step method based on the techniques I have developed as a writer, and used in the writing of my 13 novels. Students have the advantage of posting their own prose on-line and receiving positive feedback from other students. This is invaluable. You learn what ‘works’ and what ‘doesn’t work’ while still writing your first draft.
