“Craft a Great Setting”


Romantic suspense author Beth Ann Ziarnik's presentation will cover how writers can "Craft a Great Setting." Using personal experience--including exciting and sometimes humorous events during her on-site research, she will share tips and techniques for bringing a story's setting alive in the reader's imagination. As one very kind Amazon reviewer said: "It's amazing how she writes fiction to look so real."

Beth will also make available for purchase paperback copies of both Her Deadly Inheritance and its sequel Her Deadly Reunion. These will be cash transactions because she doesn't have the capability to accept debit or credit cards. The books are $12.50 each, and she will be happy to autograph them.

For more information, you may contact John Silah at or by phone at 920-923-1918 (home) or 920-251-9586 (cell). Information about the Fond du Lac Area Writers i available at their website:
