This week I welcome the thrilling AND thriller writer duo: CK Webb and DJ Weaver, authors of Cruelty to Innocents and Collecting Innocents.

We'll talk about how to write great dialog and welcome YOUR examples - give us a call!

We talk most of the time—except for when we’re not. The gift of language is part of our existence. We communicate with words far more often and easily than we do through writing or even through an expression like a glare or a smile. And yet much of the time, in conversation as in life, things are not what they seem. Words don’t necessarily mean what you think they do, or what they mean when you’re writing narrative prose. That’s because in dialog the words themselves are colored by the people who are using them.
