Queen of The Outlaws – Interview With Author Gloria Kempton

Recently, author of The Outlaws Journey, A Mythological Approach to Storytelling, Gloria Kempton –Glos color pic w hat
writing instructor, coach and editor – stopped by and allowed me to interview her for Literary Liaisons.  Gloria talks about why she wrote The Outlaw’s Journey, her gratitude to Chris Volger, author of The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, for writing a generous Foreword, and then answers a few questions like; What mistakes do you see writers most frequently make and how best can they address them? She also answers the question; what should your shadow character (outlaw, bad guy – antagonist) be doing in your story? So, grab a coffee, sit back and watch. The interview last about 7 minutes. Oh, and then please  LIKE on Facebook and youtube, if you would. And no need to comment on my fuzzy hair and inability to speak (oral surgery)… I know already.:) Thanks.

    Gloria makes a good interview subject. She’s so expressive. I loved her class at WOTS.

      Yes, she is a good ‘subject’ – she’s such a fascinating person. Thanks for reading. BTW, I’m enjoying your book.

    Very interesting subject. Her experience as a teacher in prisons lends credibility to her take on this subject. Good way to understand “outlaw” as a character in fiction and in real life.

      Yes, she has a good deal of experience here and highlights the emotional journey of the outlaw. It’s a great resource. Really enjoyed the book.
