You’d think that writing about sex would be easy. After all, what’s more compelling than lust? But, says this week’s guest, there’s a lot more to thrilling the reader than just stringing sex scenes together.

Cher Gorman is a prolific award-winning author. Her first published novel, Wolf Island, was a 2006 EPPIE Award finalist (EPPIE is given for e-books). Her second book, Seductive Reasoning, was released in June 2006, and her third, a collaborative nonfiction project, Ten Steps to Creating Memorable Characters, comes out in November. As if that weren’t enough for one year, three more books will debut between November 2006 and February 2007: The Dove (romantic suspense); Sheriff In My Stocking (erotic contemporary romance); and The Secret Truth at Dare Ranch (contemporary romance). Cher’s voice, style, and ability to create deep characters and clever plot twists have earned her glowing reviews.

Join Cher and Writing Show host Paula B. for this provocative discussion that covers, among other things:
