Do you write Inspirational Paranormal novels, but aren't quite sure where to start? Ever wonder if your heroine is allowed to sock her nemesis in the eye? Sure, your hero can quickly drop-kick an assailant, but should he? What about fear and doubt? How do they figure into a plot built on faith? Over this four-week workshop we'll learn ways to super-charge your uplifting message. Plus, learn the basics of creating a daily devotional for a deep POV of your character's faith-journey.

Stephanie is wild about Danish, Swedish and French police dramas and sci-fi adventures. Her dream rock concert would be, 'Jem and The Decepticons.' When she isn't penning “how-to” articles, you can catch her writing action-packed Inspirational Paranormal whodunnits. She is also the author of, "Zombie Apocalypse: Weekly Devotional."
