Guest Speaker: Avery Flynn
If You’re Not Freaked Out; You’re Doing It Wrong
Have you ever found yourself curled up under your desk? Perhaps you’ve considered taking a hammer to your laptop? Maybe you’ve eaten your weight in Oreos because it’s better than putting your fingers on the keyboard? Oh yes, the joys of writing. We know them well, don’t we? So, why do we do it when there are so many more productive things we could be doing like actually putting away the laundry or, you know, cleaning the shower grout with an enemy’s toothbrush? In this fun—really—and inspirational—oh man, we hope so—keynote address, USA Today best-selling author Avery Flynn reassures you that you’re not alone because if you’re a writer and you’re not freaked out, then you’re doing it wrong.
Avery Flynn is a USA Today bestselling romance author. She has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip. She was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smart alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
