Character development, setting and plot with Eileen Cook

editing a book process how to structure a book how to write complex characters writing tips for setting

Welcome Eileen Cook to The TufFish Show, a place to help writers and aspiring authors get out of their own way to leave a legacy by telling the stories they want to share through writing their own books and confidently sharing them with others. The writing process can be tough and the business side can feel scary, but TufFish makes both feel smoother and achievable. 

Eileen and I had a powerful and in depth conversation all about the craft of writing. Leveraging her psychology background, we talked about why people, thus characters, do what they do and how you can get to really know your characters, so that your writing draws in your reader. Setting and plot are key, so we covered these tenets and how they blend together.

Eileen Cook is a multi-published, award winning author with her novels appearing in nine languages. Her books have been optioned for film and TV. She spent most of her teen years wishing she were someone else or somewhere else, which is great training for a writer. She’s an instructor/mentor with The Creative Academy and Simon Fraser University Writer’s Studio Program where she loves helping other writers find their unique story to tell.
