Katie McGarry - Adding Emotional Depth To Your Manuscript

In a dynamic and heartfelt presentation, Katie McGarry shared her expertise on writing realistic characters, specifically characters (from my experiences of Katie's books) who keep you turning pages and have the power to move you to tears.

As you write, consider the following;

Do you honestly know your characters? 

Set the stage- your setting should be a character

Backstory isn't always evil

Be aware of body language

Do your research

and 

Dig deep

Katie shared excerpts from her books as well as insight from her real life. She is the award winning author of Pushing the Limits, Dare You To, Crash Into You, Take Me On, and Breaking the Rules.
