In addition to writing fiction, I also speak to local groups. Below is a list of my Presentation Topics.
From Divorce Lawyer to Romance Author – Following Your Dream
I will take you through my journey from law school, to representing highly contentious and emotional divorce clients, to my current writing and speaking career. Perhaps it will inspire you to follow your dream.
A Year in the Life of a Writer
Taking a story from idea to published novel is not an easy task but it’s worth it to see your book in print. I will cover my process from vague concept through creation of characters, plotting, blueprinting, writing and editing.
What It Takes to Write a Novel
The three “P’s” of writing success are Process, Patience and Persistance. I will discuss how each of these elements contributes to a published novel (or any other goal).
How to Plot Your Story
My writing process, which starts with an in-depth outline or blueprint of the entire book, will make those of you who are linear thinkers ecstatic and those of you who are pantsers willing to try it another way.
Lawyers as Characters, Lawsuits as Plot Points
Lawyers make interesting characters and I have worked with and against dozens of them to give you insight into their general traits. Lawsuits also engage characters in high conflict which is instrumental in keeping the tension up. I will discuss the many types of lawsuits that can make your novel a page-turner.
There isn’t enough time in the day for career, family, volunteering and hobbies. Find out how I managed my time to include a well-established career as a matrimonial attorney in my community, sat on non-profit boards and wrote romance novels, all while raising my family.
