Just in time for National Novel Writing Month, Maryland author, Amy Schisler, will give a talk on how to incorporate your own experiences into your writing to help better bring your stories to life.

For a work of fiction to be worth reading, it must be authentic. Research is a big part of writing, but knowledge and experience are crucial for your writing. We’ll discuss turning your knowledge and experience into unforgettable stories people will be clamoring to get their hands on.

Amy Schisler is a novelist, poet, children’s book author, spiritual writer, blogger, reader, and avid traveler with years of professional experience in all manner of writing-related endeavors. Amy’s first novel, A Place to Call Home, a romantic suspense, debuted in 2014, and her much-loved Chincoteague Island Trilogy has won numerous literary awards.

Amy lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her family. When she’s not writing, Amy can usually be found hiking in the Rocky Mountains, most often with a good book in her hand.

For more information about her works, visit her website or search for her books in our catalog.
