Course Description

The best books are the ones you can't put down. The best characters are those you can't stop thinking about. The best stories keep you up after your bed time.

As an author of suspense novels, I know the importance of pace, tension and conflict. But it's not only thrillers that need those elements - all novels need to keep the reader hungry for the next chapter.

In this stand-alone session I'll share techniques that writers use to create an elusive spark that will electrify your story. I'll also introduce my longer 6-week Start Your Novel boot camp course.
Hello, I'm Jo Furniss, author of suspense novels including the Amazon Charts best-seller All The Little Children, and my most recent release, The Last to Know. I've also contributed short stories to the "Afraid of the Light" crime anthologies. I have an MA in creative writing - which I studied online - and I've tutored on the internet and in person at the Arvon Foundation. In our relaxed and supportive environment, we will explore fictional worlds and embrace the blank page!
