Welcome to the second edition of LET's Write with host Fran Lewis. Today best selling author and head writer of Murder She Wrote, Tom Sawyer will be joining this panel of distinquished authors which includes best selling author Alan Topol and award winning author Stuart Yates.
Today's discussion will center around creating different settings when writing historical fiction or a murder mystery. How important is the setting to the storyline and how does their main character adjust to the different changes in setting that often occur throughout a book. If their main character could pick anywhere in the world they would like to go in the next book, what would it be and why? How do these authors keep it interesting for readers? What is the importance of mood and dialogue and how do you keep it flowing and not stilted. These topics and more will be discussed when you join Fran Lewis, your host and these distinquished authors of Let's Write.

With a quick substance check of myself: I was married, with children (that weren't my own), divorced after divorcing, ended up in a court fighting the courts over child support. The courts did not have jurisdiction so, they played a 'foul move' with the grandfathered Common Law Marriage (which, in the State of Illioins, was used last in 1959 by wed's, Mary and Teddy Johnson). I acted fast and went on to 'use' the bond of then (and up until now) Dorothy Brown, Clerk of the Courts (Cook County). Long story short, the ILCS (Illinois Complied Statutes) was where the bond was located (705 ILCS 105/4) and the State, has been paying out a portion of the $5,000,000.00 statutorily bond policy and as much as, $2,600.00 is paid, to this day!
Short and sweet, right? Well, the just of this is you have to become educated about the what can and can not be used, in the interest of the law, principal of agreeing parties and collections of data providing a means of comfort in a uncomfortable dynamic world, we live in!
