Launching Writers as Speakers

Join us Saturday, November 9, 2019 as we hold our annual “Launching Writers as Speakers” (LWaS) program. This event is for our members to begin their journey of becoming speakers in the comfort and care of their fellow members. The program will be held at Arlington Community Church, 1715 W. Randol Mill Rd, Arlington,, TX from 10:30a.m.-12pm.

The 2019 LWaS program welcomes Connie Leonard and Ann Boyles as our presenters this year.

Connie Lewis Leonard will present, “Called to Write.” Why do you write? What are your goals? What do you do when you get discouraged?

Lenoard is an accomplished novelist and active journalist who writes fiction and nonfiction. As a journalist, she regularly writes inspiring personal interest stories about people who make a positive difference in the world. Her articles can be found in multiple regional magazines published by Green Fox, With You in Mind Publications, and RedFinn Publications.

Leonard’s latest Christian romance, Play Me back Home in Texas, was released on Amazon in October 2019. Other books include Light up My Life in Texas, Somebody Somewhere in Texas, A Psalm a Day, and Big C, little c.

A retired public school teacher, Leonard shared her passion for writing with her students, encouraging many young writers to pursue their writing interests. She has a Master of Arts in English and Education from Midwestern State University and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Angelo State University.

She lives in Granbury with her husband and three rescue dogs and enjoys visiting with their two grown children and three grandchildren. Connect with Leonard at:

Ann Boyles will present “How Subtext Can Create the Aha! Moment.” Discussing an awareness of how subtext functions, how it can increase our skill, and utilizing it to enrich our writing and capture our reader.

Boyles has written three novels that make up the series, Dragonfly Trilogy. The stories are set in the mid-nineteenth century, primarily in Japan. She is in the process of self-publishing and expects to launch her books beginning in early January 2020.

Her Japanese settings harken back to a specific call God gave her to Japan after she joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. She lived in Japan for four years, where she taught English Bible studies as well as met and married her missionary husband. She briefly met her Japanese cousins there, not knowing she would someday write fictional stories about their common ancestor, her great-great-uncle, the first American consul in Nagasaki.

Later, for thirteen years she directed the Dallas Baptist University Intensive English Program for international students. Additionally, she led teams for summer English camps and seminars in Taiwan, mainland China, and South Korea. Officially retired now, she still teaches an international course, “Developing the Christian Mind,” at DBU.

Boyles is the winner of the 2018 ACFW Genesis award and the ACFW Virginia Crown award for historical romance. She believes these awards belong also to her many mentors who came along to assist her, first in North Texas Christian Writers, then for several years in the ACFW critique group at Janice Olsen’s home, and currently in the local ACFW DFW group.

The meeting is followed by a pay-your-way lunch at a nearby restaurant for further fellowship and networking.
