On Saturday, May 20, 2006, the Ozarks Writers League of Branson, MO featured a session with award-winning authors Velda Brotherton and Jodi Thomas. Velda shared secrets of how she captures and holds her readers' attention. Both authors, whose fields of expertise include western historical romance, mystery and mainstream women's fiction, offered motivation and advice for writers in all stages of their careers. Those who missed this session missed a golden opportunity to learn from the best this industry has to offer.
