Mary Buckham is an urban fantasy author, professional speaker, and teacher. Her Writing Active Setting Series has helped me personally to develop much stronger books. I was very excited that she agreed to come on Writer Groupie to present to you, her latest work, Writing Active Hooks book two. If you haven’t yet picked up her books, and you are a writer, I encourage you to do so. They are truly wonderful, easy to read, easy to follow, and easy to apply to your work. Mary is a USA Today bestselling author, and believe me, she has INSIDER info on what to do to hook a reader or an agent or editor.
