What does Nora Roberts, Stephen King, George Lucas (STAR WARS), Stephen Spielberg (E.T.) and all of those other blockbuster creators know about writing that makes them the mega stars that they are?

Learn about the 18 scenes that every story contains, no matter its length or genre.  Find out how to identify your character’s mental gender and what impact that has upon readers.  Discover how your character’s arc drives your story and how your story drives your character’s arc.  Learn the four throughlines of every story and how to weave them together.

Every successful story contains characters who come alive for the reader.  Every successful story is built on a solid, easy-to-master, story structure that works every single time.  Every successful story lives on in the hearts and minds of readers because their authors have mastered the simple secrets needed to turn them into writing super stars.  And you can, too.


Writer/director/producer Carol Hughes has been a driving force behind some of Hollywood’s most financially successful media franchises.  Carol was the studios’ “go to person” when it came to helping her fellow writers turn their uncut diamonds of rough stories into some of Hollywood’s most memorable and financially successful projects.  Over the years, her projects generated in excess of $1 billion in profits for both the studios and the leading Networks.

Now she enjoys writing and working with her fellow novelists by sharing the powerful secret writing techniques and tricks behind some of Hollywood most successful films and television series that had made her a much sought after story development consultant and writer for so many years.
