"There are few authors, in my opinion, that do characters as well as Jennifer Fallon. She makes them feel both real and natural. Each has their own voice, distinct personality and a combination of strengths and flaws. Furthermore, the "bad" characters still have good qualities while the "good" characters are capable of doing very bad things..." - Dragons, Heroes and Wizards Review Jennifer Fallon is the author of 17 bestselling fantasy and science fiction novels, 4 different series, numerous short stories, and has written official tie-in stories for both Stargate SG1 and Zorro. She is published in 6 languages (at last count), has worked with some of the top editors and publishers in the industry (Tor, Orbit, HarperCollins, Random House, etc) and has been teaching writing master classes for the past 8 years. She has a Masters Degree in Creative Writing, has been shortlisted for numerous awards, and has worked in Adult Education for the past 20 years. She mentors young writers and ran the Reynox International Writer's Retreat until it was destroyed in the Christchurch Earthquakes of 2010. This book, initially written as a companion to her Master Classes, is easy to understand, written with humor and insight, and a must have for all aspiring writers.
