About This Class

You can write your first Romance Novel. It's a fun and exciting thing to do, as you build your world and populate it with the characters you will learn to love, and to even dislike! Yes, that's right - they are your characters and you can give them what ever personality you like. 

You don't need any experience. You don't need a degree. If you can read and write, and have an imagination, that's all you need.

The Romance novel genre that has been popularised by Mills & Boon is the best place to start when wanting to begin your first novel. As you most likely know by now, it’s actually not that easy to sit down and start writing. It takes courage, and some dedication, but once you start, like any good novel, you won't be able to put it down...


Recommended Reading to go with this course. The course refers often to these books

The Innamincka Affair. "Robert Chalmers" Print and Kindle. Amazon.
The Welcoming. "Nora Roberts" Mills&Boon/Harlequin. Amazon
Optional: The Dragons of Sara Sara. "Robert Chalmers" Print & Kindle. Amazon

While the novel The Dragons of Sara Sara isn't used as an example in this introductory course, it would be good practice to see if you can find the detail that taught in this course, in that particular novel. Not all romances are the same...

Please contact me for help and advice. Writing is such fun, and I love to help where I can.

For aspiring Authors - selecting the right genre to writ under is often a challenge, but one of the nicest ones is Romance. Everyone wants a bit of Romance in their lives, and people love to read about other peoples lives, and to watch them on TV and in the movies. Look at the success of some of the long running "Soaps". My master course on How to "Write  A Romance Story" will get you going in the right direction easily and quickly. Really, it's not as hard as you think.

For creative people who like to work with glass, I believe that there's a creative side in us all. Consider the wide range of subjects I teach. They are all subjects that I have learnt in order to further enhance my own creative energies in Fused Glass creation, just as you can. Fused Glass is such a beautiful medium to work in, and you can create beautiful pieces from tiny jewellery pieces up to shimmering table ware.  Check out my courses related to Glass Fusing and Photoshop and I'm sure you'll be walking away with a masterpiece of your own in no time.

Computer technology may seem like a black art to many, but again, I wanted to overcome my natural inclinations to shun this area. To my amazement I discovered a world of creativity awaited me, from writing the actual programs to run application on my iPhone, to the design work necessary to create the art work I needed to enhance these little programs. I've been programming now since the early 1980s, but still come back to my first love - Writing.
