“From Teasers through the Main Attraction: 7 Steps to Building Sexual Tension that Every Romance Author Should Know
We have been moved to the ATHENS ROOM for this meeting. (Our old meeting room)
Want to help your writing go from ho-hum to hot in the space of one evening? Want to take the sexual tension in your latest novel from sweet to sizzling? Then join multi-genre romance author Tracy Wolff as she guides you through seven steps that will make your characters’ attraction to each other pop right off the page.
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince– and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now a writing professor at her local community college, Tracy writes for New American Library, Harlequin Superromance and Spice. She also gives workshops around the United States–teaching students how to write everything from poetry to literary narratives and short fiction and instructing teachers on how to teach writing. Her first novel, A Christmas Wedding, was published by Harlequin in November of 2008 and will be followed by five more books in 2009 that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
She lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and three young sons.
