Welcome to Your Best Writing Life, an extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference held in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mts of NC. I’m your host Linda Goldfarb. I’m so glad you’re listening in. Today– Part one in The Writer’s Personal Hero’s Journey - Overview of Hero’s Journey and Personal Application

My industry expert is A.E. Jackson writes uncanny speculative fiction for your enjoyment. He believes there are malevolent forces, just below the surface, tugging us all down. He knows another force, more benevolent than we deserve, works to keep us buoyant. He reads Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Roald Dahl, Stephen King, Paulo Coelho, Richard Matheson, H.P. Lovecraft, and Richard Bach. He lives in Delaware and is married with two children.
