    Loved this interview. Dean and Kris are warm, wonderful people who share so much.

    I read his Writing in the Dark series and loved it. I always tried to outline my stories but it never worked. Once I started Writing in The Dark I’ve fallen in love with writing again.

    I hope your listeners go to Dean’s website…he’s a great source of information…and funny too.
