ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

Flying an eight hour solo cross-country in a Piper Arrow with only
the airplane’s crackling radio and a large bag of M & Ms for company,
Sylvie Kurtz realized a pilot’s life wasn’t for her. The stories
zooming in and out of her head proved more entertaining than the
flight itself. Not a quitter, she finished her pilot’s course,
earning her commercial license and instrument rating. Since then,
she’s traded in her pilot’s license for a keyboard, where she lets
her imagination soar to create fictional adventures that explore the
power of love and the thrill of suspense.
Her first Harlequin Intrigue, One Texas Night, was a 1999 Romantic
Times nominee for Best First Category Romance and a finalist for a
Booksellers Best Award. Her Silhouette Special Edition, A Little
Christmas Magic was a 2001 Readers’ Choice Award Finalist and a
Waldenbooks bestseller. Remembering Red Thunder was a 2002 Romantic
Times Nominee for Best Intrigue. She was a 2005 and 2007 Romantic
Times nominee for Lifetime Achievement for Series Romantic Adventure.
Ms. Longshot has been optioned by Twin Star Entertainment as a
possible TV movie. She has written twenty novels. Visit her at

Coming in April – “Show and Tell: an Interactive Workshop” with
Shannon Donnelly
“Show, don’t Tell” is a cliché that has almost lost its meaning.
But “showing” and “telling” are both valuable tools for any writer.
In this workshop, we’ll use writing examples to figure out the truth
hidden in this tired phrase.
