The upcoming Johnston County Writers Group meeting will feature a guest presentation on the writing craft for November — National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  Eight-time Pultizer Prize nominee Jean Heller will present via Zoom during the “JoCo” group’s monthly meeting: Thursday, November 12, 2020, 6:30-8pm (Eastern).

This expert session is free to attend, and open to writers group members and non-member writers across North Carolina.

Heller has helped many writers as a “book doctor” over the past 18 years. She’s willing to answer any questions you have about writing novels, characterizations, sense of place, dialogue, plot, etc. for this exclusive 90-minute session online.

BooksBNimble just released Jean Heller’s Ill Wind in 2020, the latest volume in her Deuce Mora Mystery Series. St. Martin’s Press published her thrillers Maximum Impact and Handyman.

Heller is a former investigative journalist, best known for breaking the news of the Tuskegee syphilis study in 1972, and reporting that the United States claims of an Iraqi buildup on the Saudi Arabian border during the Gulf War in 1990 were not accurate. She has reported for the St. Petersburg Times, Newsday and the Associated Press.

Heller is a resident of Clayton, North Carolina. Visit Heller’s official author site at
