I’ve mentioned before that I have a Keeper Shelf on my iPad of the books I read over-and-over again to help me hone my writing skills. That shelf is totally dominated by Roberta Gellis. Nobody could weave a tale like this woman. Those of you who compliment my character building skills should know I owe a tremendous debt to Roberta Gellis. She was my mentor. Everything I know about character building and story telling came from her.
