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.
Julie’s teaching technique is informative and applicable. She doesn’t use a cookie-cutter process. Julie spends the time to learn about each of her students and gives each person individualized help. I took away more ideas and tools than any other class I’ve attended in a long while. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, Julie. You are incredible!
I am so glad I found this course. I had done some preliminary work on a thriller but was having trouble finding the 'heart' of my story and consequently, everything I tried fell short. Along comes Julie with her way of making you look at your story, characters, etc., from a different angle. Take this course! No matter your genre, your writing will improve.
CAUTION! Only for authors who want to amp up their dreary and dull novel to a red-hot-heart-thumping-thriller! Julie Rowe helps you delve deep into your novel. LOVED it!
Julie's style of teaching is exactly what I needed in this class. Rather than writing 500 words and having your work topographically examined, Julie makes you dig deep into your story. What are you writing? Why are you writing it? What message are you trying to get across to the reader? Every novel needs suspense. Julie helps you dig it out from within your own words. No matter your genre, you need to take this class!
I had nearly decided not to take anymore classes because my last two experiences had been less than stellar. In both classes, the teacher had us pair up and then our partner critiqued the assignment before we sent it in to the instructor. That's great if you have a good partner. I didn't so I didn't get reviewed. In Julie's class we sent the assignments to her. She then sent us back good, positive as well as corrective feedback. I learned so much. I was especially impressed when she took the time to read my ten pages (5500 words) and give me constructive criticism that has really helped improve the book. I would recommend Julie's classes to everyone.
