I Love a Good Mystery!

Must-Read for Writers


After spending the week absorbing this amazing book, I had to stop and review The Complete Writer’s Guide to Heroes & Heroines by Tami D. Cowden, Caro LaFeer, and Sue Viders.

I can’t say that I actually read this book from cover to cover, but I jumped all over it,

inhaling each archetype and analyzing their personality profiles. Then I played with it during an all-day movie marathon. What fun!

This book has a permanent place on my reference shelf and I find I’m checking it almost daily as I’m planning my next novel! Not to be missed!

You can still find it both new and used at the Amazon marketplace and also at Barnes and Noble.

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Marji,

    Thank you so much for bringing this book to my attention. I just got back from the ETBU Christian Writers Conference in Marshall, Texas and one of the workshops focused on character profiles. This book will be a great addition to my writing library and add to what I have already learned at the conference.


    • I LOVE IT! Took the day off on Saturday and watched movies all day, analyzing all of the characters! So fun!

      But that reminds me, how did you interview go??
