You Don’t Have to Live in New York to Be a Published Author

October 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT

A behind-the-scenes look at a how an Eau Claire native went from journaling her disappointment about the Corn Palace at age eight to selling her first novel to a major publisher thirty years later. In between: so much Babysitters Club fan fiction, a career as a professional actor and improviser, life as an English teacher, motherhood, and a brief stint writing scripts for a school district-sponsored video series about how to avoid getting expelled. (Spoiler alert: Turns out it’s a pretty bad idea to bring drugs to school.)

Come for the stories and stay for the advice about writing, perseverance, research, and making time for doing what you love.
