Think about your favorite novel. What elements move you? What makes it special?
- Do you laugh out loud? Sink under your covers?
- Does it keep you guessing?
- Does it touch your heart?
- Does it remind you why you love to read?
What if one story could do all that?
Strong plot. Stronger characters.
The magic a story conjures, that resonates within a reader can only breathe from one source—the characters. Elizabeth Bennett, Tom Sawyer, Harry Potter, Hercule Poirot . . . when a character captures the imagination, the enticement is more powerful than any plot. The journey more than turning pages to find out what happens. The read becomes an active process. We read to feel these people. To live their adventures in ways we otherwise cannot. To sigh when they find their heart in another. Ache when all is lost. Gasp when they are cornered with no way out. This soul of the book—the character—is where the love of reading is born.
It’s why I write high-impact fiction.
By weaving the steps of a character’s inner journey (growth, emotions, love interest) into the plot of a dynamic mystery, I provide an emotional experience a reader can respond to rather than just absorb. I invite you to welcome Millie Chandler, Sara Reynolds, Claire Garrison, Celia Hephner, and Kara Cinnamon into your imagination. Please let me know if they become one of your favorites.
