Four bestselling authors discuss their works at How Do I plot thee: let me count the ways...

Where do they begin? With an idea? Then what?

Join authors Kathleen Alcala and Jennie Shortridge, both in the character-driven camp of writing, in the morning of November 10th as they discuss their ideas. Then, in the afternoon, join thriller writers, Mike Lawson and Kevin O'Brien, as they put on boxing gloves and go to their separate corners to argue for how they develop an action-driven plot. Though all of these authors use different methods, the result is the same--each consistently turns out bestselling novels.

A lunch break will be from noon - 1 p.m. You are free to brown-bag it in our Commons or step out in town. A question-and-answer session will follow each presentation session.
