A great story has a way of seducing you, of pulling you in and taking you along for the ride, like it has a mind of its own. Lisa Lenard Cook talks to Authorlink about how to reach beyond the basics of story creation to nourish one’s obsessions and get inside his or her own story world.
Lisa Lenard-Cook’s first novel Dissonance was short-listed for the PEN Southwest Book Award, and her second novel Coyote Morning was short-listed for the New Mexico Press Women’s Zia Award. Lisa is on the faculty of the Santa Barbara Writers’ Conference and Vermont College’s Lifelong Learning Program. Her book, The Mind of Your Story (Writer’s Digest Books, 2008), is available in bookstores everywhere.
