Characters with Mental Illness
I write a lot about tough stuff. Even in my lighter work, I frequently have characters who are dealing with mental illness, addictions, or other physical maladies. It takes a lot of research and being able to put myself into someone else’s head and be able to successfully immerse the reader into the world of someone suffering from a disorder that they don’t have. Especially if I don’t have it either. Continue reading “Mental Illness in Writing by MTW Author PD Workman” →

Interview of Marilynn Larew
Author of The Spider Catchers and Dead in Dubai
