In November 2016 I took part in the ASA Webinar with hugely successful writer Katherine Howell. Katherine's session was focussing on building tension in fiction, which proved to be timely and enlightening. Her tips and suggestions are already helping me to think differently in both my writing and illustrating. Tension is ultimately achieved by creating uncertainty around a character who the reader cares about - great to remember! Katherine quotes Ayn Rand: "If you want to hold your readers, give them something to worry about."
