Writing and Editing

Let's talk about (writing) sex (scenes).

In this fun, interactive class, your writing group will learn about writing sex scenes that will compel your readers to keep turning the page. Appropriate for authors who write books of any heat-level, this class can be expanded into a half-day or day-long workshop that includes writing prompts, critiques, and group or individual instruction. I'll come to you, or you can come to the farm or the beach.

How to write contest-winning books

I've made the final round in enough writing contests to wallpaper the downstairs half-bath with certificates, and I've won enough to at least cover the wall behind the sink. I'm not sure what all that's worth besides wallpaper... but maybe it does provide the validation to keep writing, unlock some doors into traditional publishing, and inform potential readers that your books don't suck.

Write right, right on the beach

My critique buds and I meet at my cute little waterfront beach house on Alabama's gulf coast every year to brainstorm, critique, and write. It's small, it's cozy, and it ain't fancy, but it's as close to heaven as I've ever been. As a contest-winning, sex-scene-writing, award-winning romance author and certified copy-editor, I invite you and your writing group to join me for a writing retreat at the beach.
