The Unique Strength of Atypical Characters
Have you ever thought about writing a deaf hero? Or a blind one? A paraplegic, or an amputee? Kris Tualla will discuss what the author should--and should not do--when creating a character with a physical disability. Kris explains why she made her 1700s hero deaf, and how that impacted all of the characters in the 6-book series based around him.

In this interactive presentation we will look at writing first sentences, first paragraphs, and first pages that will hook readers and pull them into your story. In an era where readers can "look inside the book" before buying, authors do not have the luxury of sauntering out of the gate.
