So You Want to Write a Book
Four local authors discuss their writing journeys and offer tips for aspiring writers
Please join us at the Moraga Library as we present a panel of block-buster local authors who will discuss their writing. A Q&A session follows as time permits. Joining us will be:
Barbara Bentley (A Dance with the Devil: A True Story of Marriage to a Psychopath). When life threw her an unexpected curve, Barbara took the experience and turned it into a book to help others understand the crazymaking world of the psychopath. Her story has been featured on Dateline NBC.
Jon Cory (A Plague of Scoundrels). Retirement enabled Jon to return to creative writing after a career in business. His debut novel received the 2009 Independent Publishers’ Silver Medal award for popular fiction.
Alfred J. Garrotto (The Saint of Florenville: A Love Story) A native of Santa Monica, CA, Al now lives in Contra Costa County. In addition to his writing career, he serves as a lay minister specializing in adult faith formation in a local Roman Catholic parish.
Judith Marshall (Husbands May Come and Go but Friends are Forever). The novel won the Jack London Prize awarded by the California Writers Club and has been optioned for the big screen
If you have any interest in writing and being published this is a “must-attend” event.
