Coach Teresa here . . .  My mother-daughter novel Love Made of Heart would not have hooked super agent Stacey Glick in 2000 if Martha Alderson had not taught me how to plot and understand the functions of front story and back story.  Thank you, Plot Whisperer Martha!
I advise every writer to consult with Martha Alderson at least one time after you have written your first draft.  Her books = survival kit for writers.

Cheers to The Plot Whisperer aka The Plot Guru aka The Martha Alderson!
