Mother’s Day Events – 


With Cassandra Lane, Editor-in-Chief of LA Parent


Leslie Lehr and John Truby at Zibby’s Bookshop.










What an honor to host John Truby’s pub party at Barnes and Noble at the Grove. Anatomy of Genres: How Story Shapes Explain How the World Works is a follow-up to the writers’ bible, Anatomy of Story. My consulting clients will recognize the seven steps of each story form and will love exploring the deeper meaning of each genre – with examples of popular books and movies that transcend them. While I edited four drafts, I can’t take any credit for the brilliance leading this masterpiece to be #1 in four categories on Amazon. Instant classic! (photo by Diana Daniele)
