Put Your Heart in a Book Conference
2018 Pre-Conference Workshop
New Jersey Romance Writers is excited to offer an in-depth craft workshop with renowned author and speaker Melinda Leigh.
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh is a fully recovered banker. A lifelong lover of books, she started writing as a way to preserve her sanity while raising her kids. Over the next few years, she learned a few things about writing a book. The process was much more fun than analyzing financial statements, and she decided to turn her hobby into a career.

- Winner of three Golden Leaf Awards
- Two-time Winner of the Silver Falchion Award

She holds a second-degree belt in Kenpo Karate. She’s dabbled in Arnis stick fighting, studied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and taught women’s self-defense. She lives in a messy house in the suburbs with her husband, two kids, a couple of shelter dogs and two rescue cats who clearly run the show. With such a pleasant life, she has no explanation for the sometimes dark and disturbing nature of her imagination.
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WRITING ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
Do you want to write a page-turner? The key to writing unputdownable fiction is creating tension. The reader must need to know what is going to happen next! International bestselling author Melinda Leigh will teach techniques, tips, and tricks for revving up the tension in stories of any genre, including her favorite category: romantic suspense.
The Pre-Conference Workshop Fee is $50 and will be added to your Conference Registration at checkout during the registration process.
Join us for this special three-hour event, which will take place the morning of Friday, October 19, prior to the NJRW Put Your Heart in a Book Conference.
