San Fernando (Zoom): How to Write a Page Turner

June 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

June 4th – Jeri Westerson

How to Write a Page Turner!

 

 

The San Fernando Valley Branch of the California Writers Club is excited to welcome award-winning author Jeri Westerson as our speaker on June 4 at 1:00 pm via Zoom with a presentation titled “How to Write a Page Turner!”

What makes a book an enticing page-turner? What tools do writers need to keep readers up at night (in a good way)? Page-turning novels grip readers from the very first word and don’t let go until the very last word. There are a few tips and tricks that writers can do to get there; all you need is someone to offer some advice. Jeri Westerson, award-winning medieval mystery author, will offer suggestions and will answer the burning questions you may have on writing books that are certain to sell and bring readers back again and again.

L.A. native Westerson writes the critically acclaimed CRISPIN GUEST MEDIEVAL NOIR series, two urban fantasy series, a gaslamp-steampunk fantasy series, a rom/com LGBTQ mystery series, and numerous short stories in various mystery anthologies.

To date, her medieval mysteries have garnered thirteen industry award nominations, from the Agatha to the Shamus. She has served as president of the SoCal Chapter of Mystery Writers of America, president of Sisters in Crime Orange County, and vice president for sisters in Crime Los Angeles. She’s also a member of the Historical Novel Society. Her latest novel, OSWALD THE THIEF; A Medieval Caper, releases May 28th.
