Today’s world is literally at a writer’s fingertips.  A few keyboard strokes can open the Internet information gates to help you create stories that are distinctively credible and compelling.

This month: Thinking of Writing a Book?

Do you have a story you want to share? In the form of a novel, memoir, or creative journalism? As you begin to approach the book idea that’s been back of mind for a while, there are five things you would do well to consider before putting pen to paper or fingers to keys. Sheila Grinell will talk about developing a book concept on which you can act and share some thoughts on how and where to start.

Sheila Grinell spent forty years developing science museums in the US, including  the Arizona Science Center in downtown Phoenix. She turned to literature in her sixties, publishing a debut novel, Appetite, in 2016. The Contract, her second work of fiction, appeared in 2019. Born in a taxi in Manhattan, she studied at The Bronx High School of Science, Harvard University, and the University of California at Berkeley. She lives in Phoenix with her husband, Tom Johnson.
