The fascinating characters are all unforgettable. Laura adored her parents when she left for college. There, she began to spread her wings and gained a little independence, necessary because she was still Daddy's Little Girl. When she met Jim at the university, her life changed in ways she never imagined. They married and her beloved husband had an unfortunate fatal accident, partially due to her parents' sabotage. Though distraught, Laura and their two children began life again. Her father Will, an attorney, introduced her to his client Dr. Paul Duff, whom she later married. The doctor was accused of kidnapping his small son. After a series of strange and astonishing events, Laura was thrown into jail and her children were taken from her by her parents. Her life became a nightmare, and she had to find a way to get her children back. What were the secrets that caused these devastating events? Her once-loving parents feared to reveal their shocking past, which led to their destructive actions against their daughter. Would their daughter discover their reasons and could she ever forgive them? Books can be ordered through Trafford and most of the large book stores, including Borders and Barnes and Noble.

Love in America Book Excerpt:

 Widely considered the most complex of human emotions, romantic love both shapes and reflects core societal values, its expression offering a window into the cultural zeitgeist. In popular culture, romantic love has long been a mainstay of film, television and music. The gap between fictitious narratives of love and real-life ones is, however, usually wide--American's expectations of romance and affection often transcend reality. Tracing the history of love in American culture, this book offers insight into both the national character and emotional nature.

CPR for Dead or Lifeless Fiction A Writer s Guide to Deep and Multifaceted Development and Progression of Characters Plots and Relationships Book Excerpt:

Characters: Do your characters have no obvious signs of life, nothing that gives them unique personality, perspective, and passion? Plots: Are plots and conflicts created spur of the moment with no set up, build up, curiosity, or tension? Relationships: Are your characters merely going through the motions with each other? All of these and more are signs of dead or lifeless stories. The three core elements of story--Characters, Plots, and Relationships (CPR)--need to be developed three dimensionally. To truly be living, characters aren't simply existing and going through the motions. They possess fully developed external and internal conflicts. They're interacting in dynamic, realistic, and believable relationships. They have multidimensional character attributes that give them both vitality and voice. Finally, they're engaged in what makes life worthwhile with definable goals and motivations. This resource teaches writers how to identify dead or lifeless characters, plots, and relationships; establish proper setup; plant the seeds early with in-depth sketches; and pinpoint weak areas in CPR development. The only one-stop, everything-you-need-to-know 9-1-1 for deep, multifaceted Character, Plot, and Relationship development!
