Author of The Sad Girl and Don't Stop Believing.

When you get right down to it, Bob Mueller writes about emotions. He finds them in his own experiences as a divorced father and family member of a sex abuse survivor, and from the people he meets. He puts himself in someone else’s shoes, and teases out their feelings.

Born in north Texas and raised in southeastern Ohio, Bob is a member of Tulsa NightWriters and Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, a father of eight, and a pastor’s husband. When he’s not writing, he enjoys reading (thrillers, historical fiction and non-fict

Discoveries, Part 2 of The Sad Girl, is coming soon - Writer | UnfocusedI wrote the short story that became The Sad Girl series back in 2008. Bryon Quetermous and Dave White were running something they called the Blogger’s Fiction Project, where a bunch of bloggers would all write shorts on the same topic and post them on the same day. They invited me to join in the second one, where the topic was an object you’d find at a police aucti...

Good stuff

There are quite a few good chips in this book. I especially like her attitude that this isn't the be-all-end-all book on how to write. She specifically says this worked really well for her, but it might not work for everyone else.

“The mental leaps from “I’ve got a daughter” to “she’s dead” and then to “she’s been murdered” could span the Grand Canyon.”
Bob Mueller, The Sad Girl

“I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea of someone buying and selling children in the twenty-first century.”
Bob Mueller, The Sad Girl

“Gulls shriek plovers and sandpipers run up and down the beach. The tide is all the way out. The stone jetty from which people fish in the summer is covered with seals basking in the light.”
Kathleen Valentine, Ghosts of a Beach Town in Winter

“Tiny waterfalls trickle down over the rocks where they freeze and the ice glitters in the sunlight reflected off rock and snow. It is said that in the old times, when the early loggers came, the first tree cut down could not fall because the forest was so dense there was no place for it to land.”
Kathleen Valentine, The Whiskey Bottle in the Wall: Secrets of Marienstadt

“The tall blue spruce trees surrounding the church stood like ancient prophets in white gowns and a peregrine falcon that had taken up residence in the belfry perched on a ledge keeping an eye out for wandering mice.”
