Sally John will share her writing process with the students in her David R. Collins 2011 Writer's Conference workshop entitled "A Novel Journey." Her tips are designed to take the aspiring writer from concept to publication by focusing on some of the more important aspects of novel writing. During the three-day course from 8:30-11:00am June 23, 24, and 25, she will cover everything from protagonist construction to conflict development. If her seminar is anything like her blog, writers will experience a teacher and writer who is as involved with her characters as she is with reality -- "Aside from one rather involved discussion with Protagonist, I took the weekend off and then some" (blogged March 26-28, 2011). Her experienced and unique outlook on the world of novel writing will prove invaluable for anyone interested in becoming a published writer. Space is limited, so sign up today.

Sally John's fifteen years in the world of fiction have been filled with successes ever since her first published work -- a computer software manual. Since that first step, she has been inspired to write numerous novels as well as non-fiction articles for a variety of magazines. She has been a three-time finalist for the Christian Bookseller Association's Christy Award and has received numerous accolades for her popular series, including Side Roads, Safe Harbors, and The Beach House. Although she now lives in Southern California with her husband, she is originally from Moline, Illinois. Her website describes her work as "seventeen novels [that] explore marriage, family, and friendships in today's world." Her success, however, has not separated her from her fans. Her blog is dedicated to a daily explanation of her life and writing process.
