Creators Program- Finding the heart of your story w/ Shelia Redling
Creator’s Talk focuses on finding the heart of your story.
Novels are living things and bringing them to life can vary from wrangling them like dragons to administering CPR and hoping for the best. No matter how lively or inert your story is, it's always a good idea to know where the heart of your story is and how to keep it pumping life throughout the writing process. We'll discuss character evaluation, pacing, and tone, as well as other tragedies and adventures that can befall your novel as it comes into the world.

Shelia Redling
Sheila Redling is a Huntington native and graduate of Georgetown University.. After living in Washington, D.C, New York City, and Truckee, CA, she returned to Huntington, where she hosted the morning radio program on WKEE-FM for fifteen years. When vocal health complications forced her to retire from the airwaves, she pursued fiction writing in earnest. Her first novel, FLOWERTOWN (Thomas & Mercer, 2012) sold an unprecedented 50,000 copies in its first six weeks. From there, she has released a string of mind-bending thrillers and sci-fi novels. But writing isn't her only love. She dabbles in painting, drawing, and even a bit of acting, as well as hosting and organizing workshops on the craft and business of writing. She also works part-time spreading the good news of the Huntington art scene at The Red Caboose Artisan Market and the Huntington Area CVB.
