on Career Authors:
My mission as an author is to help readers become aware of issues facing endangered species through the craft of creating story worlds that identify important parallels between nature and human nature. That seems straightforward if you’re writing non-fiction, but how do you pull that off well as a fiction writer?
Our job as writers is to create an authentic story world through characters, plot, and themes. And to do that successfully, the writer must always remember that the bedrock of your story world is setting. It is the guidepost for me when I’m developing my characters, plot, and even dialogue.
Setting plays a pivotal role because when done correctly, it will enhance the storyline, characters, themes and even mood of a novel.
