Winner of both the Scott O’Dell Award and the VLA Cardinal Cup for historical fiction, L.M. Elliott will be discussing her award-winning novels–LOUISA JUNE AND THE NAZIS IN THE WAVES and BEA AND THE NEW DEAL HORSE with participants.
Set in Virginia, both works highlight little remembered history of the Commonwealth. Elliott will discuss writing craft, the research that inspired her characters (Research is the BEST fun, she says!), plot, and themes. Followed with an interactive workshop and story-creating prompts, plus a few interview techniques.
