Award-winning novelist P.D. Workman writes riveting young adult/suspense fiction about mental illness, addiction, and abuse.

For as long as P.D. Workman can remember, the blank page has held an incredible allure. After a number of false starts, she finally wrote her first complete novel at the age of twelve. It was full of fantastic ideas. It was the spring board for many stories over the next few years.

She has a passion for art and nature, creative cooking for special diets, and running. She love to read, to listen to audio books, and to share books out loud with her family.

I have one that I am sending to beta readers right now that is not as clear a fit as some of my others have been, and I'm struggling to find the right browse categories and BISAC classifications in order to list it at the various stores. You want a fairly narrow category to help boost visibility, and I am having a hard time narrowing it down further than 'contemporary fiction', which is sort of a mess to be in.

It is not easy to promote a book if you can't say 'it's a young adult suspense about...' or 'a mystery/thriller...' or whatever. People want to know what it is in order to judge whether it is something that they would ever consider reading.

Since I started publishing, I have learned that writing a synopsis, coming up with cover concepts, and focusing on genre and category is easiest to do before you start the first draft, and helps to focus your writing during the drafting process and keeps your writing tight. (less)

" Near future and slightly advanced technology... might not be sci fi.

Have you considered techno-thriller?

" I love Oliver Sacks too.

And Flowers for Algernon was a game-changer for me when I first read it in junior high.
