Becky: Yes, welcome. We are so glad you found us. We have been teaching and guiding writers through the pitfalls and hazards of getting started with their stories for more than ten years. Whether it be a romance novel, a sci-fi adventure or a shoot ‘em up thriller, we have worked with dozens of writers and now we are here to offer you guidance in your work.

Becky: And that is where we come in. We have both been beginning writers ourselves and we remember some of those questions and the turmoil that comes from trying to find the answers.

Sue: We also discovered writers are all different and we both bring some of those general differences to this teaching partnership. I’m the talker whereas Becky is more of a thinker…grin, but between the two of us we cover all the bases, from nonfiction books to a new set of cozies and of course Becky’s romantic-suspense, romance and mystery novels.
Becky: Agreed. Deadlines and discipline are what get the stories written. I worked for 30 years in a profession where we sometimes had minute by minute deadlines, but whether it’s hourly or monthly, without deadlines, often the story, whatever it may be, stays in your head.
