Want to write a New York Times Bestseller? Thrillers, mysteries, and suspense novels consistently rank in the top 25 books on the NYT bestseller list. Some of the biggest authors in the world write dangerous novels—James Patterson, Agatha Christie, Dean Koontz, Nora Roberts, and John Grisham to name only a few.
Writing a good book with a dangerous edge has both pros and pitfalls. Julie Rowe, author of the military thriller Biological Response Team series and the thriller Outbreak Task Force series, provides a writing master class of information, insight, writing exercises, and comprehensive feedback on your dangerous novel.
***Every lesson includes questions and/or writing exercises designed to help you prepare to write (or revise) your dangerous novel.
Full-time author and workshop facilitator, Julie Rowe’s first career as a medical lab technologist in Canada took her to the North West Territories and Fort McMurray, Alberta, where she still resides (despite a wildfire forcing the entire city to evacuate on May 3, 2016). Julie’s debut novel, Icebound, was released by Carina Press on Nov 14, 2011. Ten novels and eight anthologies have followed. Her most recent titles are the MEN OF ACTION boxed set and VIRAL JUSTICE book #3 of the Biological Response Team series. Julie’s articles have appeared in magazines, such as Romantic Times Magazine, Today’s Parent magazine and Canadian Living.
Julie facilitates communication workshops at Keyano College in Fort McMurray, and has presented writing workshops at conferences in the United States and Canada. She’s also a strong supporter of life long learning and moderates a free announcement loop for the promotion of online classes, workshops and webinars.
The EDITS system is a little bit of magic. Wielding 5 brightly colored highlighters, I marked up my manuscript according to the system and--Voila!--why a scene works, or doesn't, is as plain as blue, green, yellow, pink, and orange. This was my third class with Suzanne and she never disappoints. I highly recommend this class. Expect incisive, kind feedback and quick responses to questions, along with Suzanne's good humor.
I just finished Margie's class, Empowering Characters Emotions taught by Suzanne Purvis and I feel empowered. The class is packed with brillant examples of writing. Suzanne's insight, experience and patience helped me see that my first draft can be transformed into powerful writing.
Thank you Margie and Suzanne!
Loved, Loved, LOVED this class! Not only were the lectures all Margie and magnificent but Suzanne Purvis has way of amping up your prose to another level. I'd take it again, just to get Suzanne's feedback. Amazing!
I used to analyze great writers’ writing, to see how they did it. But with limited success, because I lacked tools. It was like trying to fix a car with a screwdriver, and spotty knowledge of auto mechanics. Then I took Margie Lawson’s Empowering Characters’ Emotions class, taught by Suzanne Purvis, which transformed my writing world. Margie Lawson’s lessons gave me advanced knowledge of the craft, along with a comprehensive tool kit, which helped me boost my writing to a much higher level. Suzanne’s guidance and feedback on my assignments gave me even further insight and helped make my writing even stronger. If you’re serious about your writing career, take this class!
I loved this class with instructor, Suzanne Purvis. The step-by-step approach to the EDITs system, sprinkled with lots of great tips for writing authentic emotion made this one of the best classes yet.
