Developing Character Motivation

with Barbara Wallace

Motivation is the glue that holds together Goal and Conflict. It’s also the key to deeper characters. This session examines motivation and looks at how writers can peel back the layers to create characters – both primary and secondary – that resonate with readers.

Award winning, best-selling author Barbara Wallace is the author of 19 novels and is known for her strongly drawn characters. Published by both Harlequin Romance and Entangled Publishing, she is a 3 time Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Nominee and has won the Golden Heart, the New England Readers Choice and the Booksellers Best Awards.
