What:  Firearms for Writers -- Presented by Lucinda Schroeder

Let’s face it…. cops and criminals carry guns. But they don’t all carry the same type of gun. Why not? Learn which make and model of firearm fits your character according to his or her personality. Give your characters a reason for carrying their weapon of choice and how to create an emotional connection between your characters and their weapons. You’ll also learn the basics of revolvers, semi-automatics, shotguns and how they work. You’ll learn the pros and cons of each in terms of tactical shooting and when a shooter is the MOST vulnerable to being shot or taken down. This class is about writing about weapons in ways that adds depth to your story. All the information in this class is factual so your fiction will ring true. This is a target you can’t afford to miss!

When:  October 1, 2012 through October 28, 2012

Registration Costs:

Speaker Information: 
 Lucinda Schroeder is a retired federal agent and the author of "A Hunt for Justice," a true crime story that reads like a mystery. She’s also a former federal firearm’s instructor. The valuable information in this class cannot found in any book and is based on Lucinda’s experience. For 30 years she relied on a weapon (or two) as her last resort in surviving a potentially fatal situation.
