Join award winning author Colleen Thompson for an all-day writing workshop focused on taking your writing, whatever the genre, to the next level.

Colleen2A former teacher and prolific speaker on the craft of writing, Colleen Thompson is the twice-RITA-nominated author of 28 books, from the fast-paced romantic thrillers she has written for Montlake, Harlequin, and Dorchester Publishing to the action-packed historical romances she wrote as Gwyneth Atlee for Kensington. Other honors include the National Readers’ Choice Award, multiple Romantic Times’ Top Picks, KISS Awards and a Reviewer’s Choice Award, Publisher’s Weekly starred review, and appearances on the Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookscan, and Waldenbooks bestseller lists. Recent titles include The Off Season, The Best Victim (both from Montlake) and Lone Star Redemption from Harlequin Romantic Suspense.

Colleen, her husband, and their rescue dog split their time between suburban Houston and their Texas Hill Country cabin, where they enjoy hiking, watching wildlife, and relaxing on hot days in the Frio River.
