What’s more important – Structure or story?

Liz Talley, multiple award-winning published author, will use Stephen James’s book, Story Trumps Structure, to help attendees understand how story and structure work together to make a great book!

About Our Speaker

From the time she learned to read, Liz had a fascination with books.  As a child she read Little Golden Books instead of napping.  And, oh, the first time she read a romance – The Thornbirds – she was hooked.

Of course, it never occurred to her to write a book until her college roommate said, “You read so many of those things, why don’t you write one?”  The idea stuck and in 2010 her first book debuted. Now instead of reading romances, she’s writing them.

A finalist in both the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart contest and Rita awards, Liz is a member of NOLA Stars and often blogs on the 2009 Golden Heart blog –   Liz married her high school sweetheart and has two smart, beautiful boys.  When not writing contemporary romances, she can be found working in the flowerbed or doing laundry.

Our speakers are experienced writers and teachers of plot and structure. They and other NOLA members will be available to answer questions and give you lots of tips and pointers to help you make your book pop.
