Writing to Activate the Reader's Imagination

Writing to Activate the Reader's Imagination


Theresa Chaze

Although novels are written in two dimensional black and white, the story actually happens in the four dimensional realms of the reader‘s mind. Multi-sensory books are the ones that become the most successful. Capturing your reader's imagination, by helping them to be able to see, hear, smell and feel every aspect of your story draws them and helps them experience the story through the characters.

Priestess Writes Fantasy Novels Containing Authentic Rituals

Inspired by William Nolan's humor, Marion Zimmer Bradley's strong magical flare and Anne McCaffrey's strong women, Theresa Chaze has created her own genre.
