Kelly Milner Halls has just debuted the beginning of a fun new series. Her Blazing Courage: Animal Rescues #1 (Darby Creek Publishing) is more than just action-packed fiction about a girl getting her first horse.
The book is a milestone for Kelly. Check out her Wonders of Weird website. You’ll see a career stressing non-fiction. She’s transferred that NF talent to write a taut, thrilling tale, making every word count. Her dialog sparkles. She concludes her book with a two-page summary of the REAL fire that almost consumed two dozen horses.
Like her main character, Kelly raised a wild Mustang as a girl. Plus, she still collects Breyer horses.
How do you make the jump from non-fiction to fiction, finding the ability to do both well?
Some might advise to write what you know.
Or, you could follow Kelly’s model: write what you LOVE.
I’m ready for book #2. More, please!
