• I’m so grateful for that class–you can’t imagine how indispensable the Hero’s Journey spread has been for me. It’s given me some amazing breakthroughs, and it was instrumental in writing my last outline for a proposal. It’s almost eerie when I look back and think, wow, if I hadn’t pulled that card, the novel might have taken an entirely different turn.–Jeri Smith-Ready

It was amazing to me, how well you picked up on a fictional character’s traits just from a few tidbits of information. I mean, he’s real to me, but I didn’t expect your reading to be so close to the man I know him to be. Joey W. Hill
