“After a lifetime writing, editing, and teaching narrative nonfiction, I thought I knew storytelling. Silly me. Writing and selling my first novel, with lots of help from successful fiction writers, took my storytelling to an entirely new level. The lessons I learned apply to any kind of story, whether it’s a news feature, a nonfiction book, a branding effort, or an ad campaign.”
