Thea Atkinson

Biography

Thea Atkinson is a writer of character driven fiction; call it what you will: she prefers to describe her work as something akin to the left of mainstream. Her characters often find themselves in the darker edges of their own spirits but ultimately manage to find the light they seek.

She has been an editor, a freelancer, and a teacher, but fiction is her passion. She now blogs and writes and twitters. Not necessarily in that order.

    What I like most about this manual is that there is no fluff. It doesn't take 10 pp to get into the stuff you really want to read and learn. The steps are clear and the writing gets right down to the nitty gritty. I don't have to read about the author's indie journey before I can begin working on using the steps. great job. I learned something in the first 3 pages.
