“Rules! We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Rules.”
Please join us Saturday, February 11, 2017, at 10:30am at Arlington Community Church when we welcome speaker Richard L. “Doc” Mabry as he presents, “Rules! We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Rules.”
“Rules. Elmore Leonard says there are ten. James Scott Bell boils it down to three. Dave Barry has only one. Anne Rice says there are none…And still others have their own “take” on this subject. So what’s a writer to believe?”
With Mabry we’ll take a look at some of these rules and talk about what writers can, can’t, should, should not, and may on occasion do as they write fiction…and why.
Mabry, who retired after 36 years as a physician, is the author of “medical suspense with heart.” His novels have been a semifinalist for International Thriller Writers’ debut novel, finalists for the ACFW Carol Award, Inspirational Reader’s Choice, and Romantic Times’ Reader’s Choice Award, as well as winner of the Selah Award with “Lethal Remedy.” He is the author of one non-fiction book “The Tender Scar: Life After The Death Of A Spouse”, ten published novels, and two novellas. His latest novel, “Medical Judgment,” is currently nominated in the Inspirational Mystery/Suspense/Thriller category of RT Reviewers Choice Best Book Award.
In addition to being part of our own ACFW DFW group, he is a proud member of the International Thriller Writers, FHL (Faith, Hope, and Love), a special interest chapter of Romance Writers of America, and Southern Writers.
