***March Class #2***

Challenging Couples in Love Workshop

Class takes place: March 14th - 18th , 2011

Cost: $15 BDRWA members/ $20 non-members

Challenging Couples in Love

Instructor: Laurie Schnebly

Class Info:

While it's easy to create conflict between a hero and heroine whose kingdoms are at war, everyday life can be a tougher setting for plausible conflicts...especially when the hero and heroine are both lovable characters. But the same conflicts that trouble real-life couples--plus the solutions recommended by marriage counselors--work for fictional couples as well.

Instructor's Bio:

Laurie Schnebly Campbell loves giving workshops for writer groups about "Psychology for Creating Characters," "Making Rejection WORK For You," "Building A Happy Relationship For Your Characters (And Yourself)" and other issues that draw on her background as a counseling therapist and romance writer.

After six books for Special Edition, she turned her attention to writing non-fiction -- using her research into the nine personality types to help writers create plausible, likable people with realistic flaws. Her other favorite activities include playing with her husband and son, recording for the blind, counseling at a mental health center, traveling to Sedona (the Arizona red-rock town named for her great-grandmother, Sedona Schnebly) and working with other writers.

"People ask how I find time to do all that," Laurie says, "and I tell them it's easy. I never clean my house!"

Laurie welcomes email from readers-send her a "Hello!"
