June Meeting

Join us for an evening with Moriah Densley as she discusses Give your characters an authentic voice through first, third, male, or female point-of-view.

Increase your powers of observation, learn from gender research, analyze examples for effectiveness, and know when to defy stereotypes with your characters.  

OBJECTIVES

•  Filter your author's perception through first person, third person, male, or female POV

•  Craft main characters who defy stereotypes and secondary characters who conform for ideal contrast, and justify non-stereotypical characters with three dimensions of character development

•  Learn tricks the pros use to create “deep POV”

•  Avoid common mistakes in POV writing


 

Moriah Densley sees nothing odd at all about keeping both a violin case and a range bag stuffed with pistols in the back seat of her car. They hold up the stack of books in the middle, of course. She enjoys writing about Victorians, assassins, and geeks. Her muses are summoned by the smell of chocolate, usually at odd hours of the night. By day her alter ego is your friendly neighborhood music teacher. She lives in Las Vegas with her husband, four children, and two possibly brain-damaged cats.

Moriah has a Master’s degree in music, is a 2012 RWA Golden Heart finalist, 2012 National Reader’s Choice Award winner, and ’12 NRCA “Best First Book” finalist. She’s the author of the bestselling “Rougemont” Historical Romance series from Eskape Press, and the “Network-One” Paranormal Romance series coming 2014 from Entangled Publishing. Moriah is represented by Courtney Miller-Callihan of Greenburger Associates. Visit http://moriahdensley.com

    I really wanted to come tomorrow. I came for the first time in May, and I had a great time. Unfortunately, I have a shoulder injury causing me a great deal of pain, so I'm stuck at home on pain meds. I will try my best to make July's meeting. Thanks!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
