Thanks for visiting my website!

Over the years my love of storytelling and curiosity about people led me to study psychology, volunteer on a crisis line, serve as a peer counselor for a family life organization, teach accounting and fraud investigation at a university, and tell stories about life, love, and secrets. I’ve been privileged to have given numerous workshops and courses to writers in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada.

Recently I’ve been having a great time working on an online multimedia Hero’s Journey course for writers and some short YouTube videos for writers on my MusePD.info YouTube channel, so watch for announcements on my blog later this fall. You can subscribe to my blog by filling in your email address in the side menu on this page.

I love discussing storytelling, books, and the creative process, so don’t hesitate to post a comment here on the site, or contact me through Twitter or Facebook.

Have a great day, and take the time to read a good book!

  1. I’ve just been reading your “Writing Romance”. I’m very pleased that my first effort at the romantic novel has many of the elements you recommend.
    I look forward to your book being very helpful as I continue to chronicle the lives of the characters in “Fortune Cookies”
    Many thanks for your help!

  2. Hi Vanessa, I would like to discuss a new distribution platform that I think you will find interesting. What is the most appropriate way to connect with you to discuss? Thank you, Fergal

    Hi there! I am enjoying your book “writing romance.” I’m finding it very helpful. However, I wanted to let you know that Charlotte Bronte did not write Wuthering Heights. It was Emily. Charlotte wrote Jane Eyre.

      You’re absolutely right!

      Thanks for catching my error. You’ve got a good eye. The interesting thing is that Writing Romance is in its third edition and you’re the first person to point out that error. Good catch. I’ve made a note in my revision file to fix it if we go into a fourth edition.

      Good luck with your writing.
