Award-winning author, Jacqui Jacoby can make you want to turn that next page. She will keep you reading even after the lights needs to go off. Among a variety of interests, Jacqui is a self-defense hobbyist which is an asset in her work. She can build the suspense having learned what the bad guy is doing and how the writer can take him down. Having studied martial arts for numerous years, she retired in 2006 from the sport, yet still brings strength she learned from the discipline to her character. She is a working writer whose career includes writing books, teaching online and live workshops and penning short nonfiction.

In this course, Jacqui will take the skills she needed to bring her Dead Men to life and pass on what she learned. Specializing in thriller and paranormals. Jacqui will teach you the "Theory of Odd" and she will teach you the pacing to make a page turner. She will tell you how to paint a villain tailor matched to your hero and heroine. It's the secret of the relationships that make a thriller thrilling. It's when we care about the characters that we care how this drama will effect these people and their relationships. Jacqui can teach you how to achieve these emotional highs.
