Elisa Talks Fiction

Welcome to the Fiction section of Food, Fitness & Fiction. Although interviewing and blogging about authors is a relatively new endeavor for me, below you’ll find some posts from this past year. Because I’ve been actively learning the craft of fiction writing while working on my debut young adult novel, below I share some of the resources I’ve learned from. I also list some of the wonderful organizations I’ve become part of and learned since I forayed into fiction writing.
