I worked at a grocery store for roughly four years in high school, and that experience translated smoothly into a novel.

I also wanted to create a small-town character who wasn't "stuck."

In writing circles, a common question is: are you a plotter or a pantser?

For those not up on the lingo, these two terms describe how someone goes about the writing process.

A plotter, as the name suggests, is someone who plots out their work. The style and length of their outlines varies. Some craft broad outlines that just list a few key events, some do chapter-by-chapter summaries. Others br...

– Some characters are interesting, with potential to become

For a novel that's supposed to be a fast-paced thriller, the main character sure does spend a lot of time pondering.

He ponders his love interest. He ponders the machinations of the shadowy forces arrayed against him. He ponders how best to infiltrate
