More Than Just A Pretty Face:
Creating Unique and Interesting Characters

Presented by
Margaret Moore

There's more to a romance heroine than long hair and a shapely figure, and more to a hero than washboard abs and furrowed brow -- or there should be. Using a combination of lecture and exercises, this craft workshop conducted by USA Today best-selling author Margaret Moore will help novice to nearly published writers create interesting, believeable characters.

Workshop attendees should come away with a better understanding of:

the difference between superficial and complex characterization

how to create more unique, interesting, conflicted and complicated characters

the role of secondary characters

what makes a good villain
