Hi Shan,
There are many great books on fiction writing, so I'd start there, regardless of genre. Donald Maas, James Scott Bell, Ann Lamott to name just a few. Study the craft but the best thing is to start writing! See what comes out and edit later. Good Luck! (less)

I will definitely put it on my TBR pile! I think you'll find my more recent novels, The Things We Knew, and The Memory Of You, quite 'deep'. :) But actually all my books tackle the deeper issues of life. It's kind of my thing. LOL. (less)
