Mental Illness in Writing by MTW Author PD Workman

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 with MTW Author Marilynn Larew

Interview of Marilynn Larew

Author of The Spider Catchers and Dead in Dubai
