THE JOY OF POLISHING THE STORY: You just wrote “The End.” Now, the true writing starts. You are ready to add meaning, nuance, foreshadowing, active setting, and subtle twists. Now, you can crank up the emotion and drama, adjust the pace, refine the storytelling, and add all the interesting flavors. Like when cooking, you add the special herbs, spices and sauces that will transform an ordinary fare into a culinary delight.
Born in France, award-winning author Vijaya Schartz never conformed to anything and could never refuse a challenge. She writes strong heroines, brave heroes, and cats. She likes action and exotic settings, in life and on the page. She traveled the world and claims she must be a time traveler, since she writes with the same ease about the far past and the far future. With thirty titles published, Vijaya Schartz writes action adventure laced with sensuality and suspense, in exotic, medieval, or futuristic settings. Her books collected many five-star reviews and literary awards. Visit her at www.vijayaschartz.com
