October Chapter Meeting: Writing Through Adversity with Debra Mullins

In October, Debra Mullins will present WRITING THROUGH ADVERSITY: How to get your pages done when your life goes haywire. This will be invaluable information for all of us once NaNoWriMo hits in November. Let’s get more NaNo winners this year!

**Remember, October’s meeting will NOT be in Azusa. We will be at the Baldwin Park Library. Due to time constraints, will not be able to hold the critique session after October’s meeting, but will resume in November (and we’ll be back in Azusa in November).

Debra Mullins is the author of multiple historical and contemporary paranormal romances. She has been nominated for numerous awards, including the National Readers’ Choice Award, the Holt Medallion (twice), and Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart and RITA awards. In 2003 she was the winner of the Golden Leaf Award for Best Historical with her Regency romance, A NECESSARY BRIDE.

Born and raised in the New York/New Jersey area, Debra has been actively writing for over twenty years. Some of her historical back list was recently released as part of the launch of Samhain Publishing’s Retro Romance e-book line, and she continues to write new paranormal and historical romances, available in print and electronic formats. Debra currently lives on the west coast with her family and two eccentric cats, where she still expects it to snow on Christmas and continues her search for Real Pizza.
