From a student: I’ve been taking writing courses and reading writing books and doing an MFA—over a few decades. [Must have started when I was 2.] The material you provide is some of the best I’ve ever seen. Your exercises are practical and helpful—and doable in a normal person’s life. [I know some normal people.] The only thing that would make it better is if the students could interact with each, and that’s not something you can control. I will be recommending your class to my clients. Teresa Crumpton


Lisa Wells

Lisa Wells writes romantic comedy with enough steam to fog your eyeglasses, your brain, and sometimes your Kindle screen. On the other hand, her eighty-year-old mother-in-law has read Lisa’s steamiest book and lived to offer her commentary. Which went something like this: You used words I’ve never heard of…

Lisa’s the author of romantic comedies. Her latest release is a paranormal romantic comedy: (HEXES AND O’S).

She lives in Missouri with her husband and slightly-chunky rescue dog. Lisa loves dark chocolate, red wine, and those rare mornings when her skinny jeans fit. Which isn’t often, considering the first two entries on her love-it list.
