Where do stories come from and how do we get them onto a page? Should we write what we know or make it up? How do we create believable characters and gripping settings? And how can everyday experiences affect our stories? Join the author as she delves into the creative process of writing a book; there’ll be readings from the Nine Lives Trilogy and plenty of opportunity to share your ideas and ask questions.
