November 2019: Writing the Happy into your Happily Ever After

One of the most common challenges of writing romance novels is ensuring the relationship feels authentic while mixing in enough drama to keep the reader intrigued. But how can an author ensure the relationship doesn’t cross any lines, and that conflict is resolved satisfactorily? Dr. Brenda Saxe will share her experience as a couple’s counsellor to talk about healthy vs unhealthy relationships and answer questions about how to make sure that our characters are set up for a truly happy HEA.
