Men are from Mars, not from Venus: Writing from the male point of view.
This workshop by Fiona Lowe will be running at 11:00am on Sunday August 23rd
Men are from Mars, so the famous book states and they think and talk very differently from women. Creating vivid heroes requires female writers to step into some size 13 boots and take a walk on the XY side! Using a multimedia presentation, Fiona Lowe will teach some brain chemistry and take participants through a variety of steps to create real and compelling male characters. Men, who walk, talk and think like men but are true heroes who capture readers’ hearts.
Meet Your Presenter
Fiona Lowe is a RITA® and R*BY award-winning, multi-published author with Berkley Penguin USA, Carina Press and Harlequin Mills & Boon. Whether her books are set in outback Australia or in the USA, they feature small towns with big hearts and warm and likeable characters that make you fall in love. When she’s not writing stories, she’s a distracted wife, mother of two ‘ginger’ sons, guardian of 80 rose bushes, slave to a cat and often found collapsed on the couch with wine. You can find her at her website, Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads.
