The CenTex Chapter will feature author Marilyn Eudaly at it’s Saturday, February 20th meeting

Characters in a Novelist’s Zoo is a fun interactive workshop. A tool used to layer stories with deep POV, motivation, and conflict, the talk allows you to experience how personality strengths and weaknesses will enhance character development while improving personal relations and resolving real-life conflict.
Creating characters as real people has come from Marilyn’s professional experience and expertise as a facilitator for the True Colors organization, a mediator and student advisory group. She has been trained in team building, communication skills, conflict resolution, suicide prevention, and dealing with troubled and angry people. Marilyn takes the one element that these all have in common, personality identification, to create a tool useful in character development. She will show you how to use that same tool to develop deep, multi-sided characters that will jump off the page and into the hearts of your readers.
Marilyn has known since she made her first book in Kindergarten that she was meant to write books. A membership in RWA, ACFW and DFW Ready Writers has given her the education and mentoring needed to become an author published in Chicken Soup for the Dieter’s Soul, Ulitmate Gardner, Words to Write By, and several devotions published on line. She is currently working on a novel that piqued the interest of two editors and one agent at the 2009 ACFW national conference in Denver, CO.
All Central Texas writers are invited to attend.
