For Jump the Line, I studied Ted Bundy's profile extensively to learn how the field of odontology (study of bite marks) was used to trap the Tedster. I created a protagonist as evil--and toothful--as Bundy and set him loose on campus. Don't worry, I also created a protagonist, a student criminologist making her way through college as a pole dancer, to trap our killer.(less)

How and Why to Develop Your Writer's Voice

What Is Voice?Thaisa Frank and Dorothy Wall provide the best definition of voice in Finding Your Writer's Voice: A Guide to Creative Fiction.  Frank and Wall say, "Your voice is actually a very ordinary thing: It is just who you are, projected artistically" (5).  They add, "It's the way you draw on yourself as you write--your sense of humor, irony, the way you see people and events, use langua...

Stephen King
“Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life as well. It's about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy. ...this book...is a permission slip: you can, you should, and if you're brave enough to start, you will. Writing is magic, as much the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free. So drink.
Drink and be filled up.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
