I’m so excited to share that I’m hosting an Immersion Master Class with Margie Lawson!!
When: September 23-27, 2020. Where: My beach house in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. (It’s listed on margielawson.com as Jacksonville, Florida, because travelers will fly into JAX.)
Margie’s Immersion Master Class will help transform your manuscript into a page-turner. The class is limited to 7 or 8 people, small and intimate, but powerfully productive. There are prerequisites: Completing three on-line courses or lecture packets prior to the class dates.
1. Empowering Characters’ Emotions.
2. Deep Editing: The EDITS System, Rhetorical Devices and More.
3. Writing Body Language and Dialogue Cues like a Psychologist.
You’ll be asked to bring a minimum of 150 pages of your manuscript (printed on one side, double-spaced, in a binder) so be prepared to work, work, work!!! I attended one in Denver over a year ago and applied what I learned in THE CHASE IS OVER, and I’m super excited to learn more the second time around!!

It’s the end of August. Where have the months gone?
It’s been a busy year. I’ll call it the year of visitors, not alien in nature, but family and friends. We created many a memory, shared laughter, partied, and of course, toured all the amazing sights in and around our homes in Florida and Utah! Next month, we welcome my cousins from England. We can’t wait to share the beauty of Southern Utah with them. The menu is planned, daily trips organized, and bar stocked. We are ready!
As for writing, it’s been a slow year, but I’m getting there. I hope to have a new book out early next year. Currently, there are three options waiting for completion. One will make it. I promise.
I attended several fabulous conferences and participated in an amazing Immersion Class with Margie Lawson. I am putting my newly acquired skills to work to finish one of the three WIPs.
My next event is the Fall In Love With New England Reader/Writer Conference, October 12-15. I look forward to meeting people who love to read, reconnecting with my sisters of spirit, and spending the weekend with fellow writers. This is the last event planned for this year. 2018 will be a year to re-immerse myself in full-time writing. To get those stories filling my head onto the page and out for my readers to enjoy.
Let’s start with a bit of history and how I managed to make my dream come true. Passion and determination drive me, which explains why I climbed the corporate ladder while still in college and ventured into the world of endurance races. Those qualities also pushed me to walk away from a twenty-plus year career to follow my dream of becoming a published author. It was a long road, but like the miles in an Ironman race, I tackled the submissions and rejections one step at a time.
I signed with my agent in December of 2010 and she sold my first manuscript within six months. I feel Blessed, not only am I working my dream job, I’m married to my best friend, training partner, soul mate. We raised a handsome, successful son, gained a beautiful daughter-in-law, and welcomed our gorgeous granddaughter into this world. Family and friends continue to be my biggest supporters, they are the reason I write with emotion and enthusiasm.
I write stories about “heart” and hope they inspire readers to step out of their comfort zones and strive to reach their own goals.
