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 whatever personality you like.

Thanks for stopping by! You weren't followed, were you? Good. I only have a moment. My name is Robert Chalmers and I tell stories. They aren't all the same genre, so don't be confused.
