Mindy Halleck’s novel, Return to Sender, about a Korean War hero turned alcoholic priest, and a religious fanatic serial-killer who collide with destiny, was a featured debut novel in Kirkus Review Magazine, January 2015.
As a three-time cancer survivor, Mindy is no stranger to inspiration. As an instructor and mentor she emboldens writers to explore their deepest secrets and fears as a healing act. She also urges writers to embrace social media early in their professional endeavors, and shows them how find their target audience through that vehicle.
Mindy believes that being an author is a small business, and social media is a small business owner’s best friend, and this is why she teaches how to effectively use Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and others–while offering ‘writer vs marketer’ time-management solutions.
Mindy blogs at Literary Liaisons and is an active member of the Pacific Northwest writing community. A one-time magazine columnist and travel writer, she is now a happily married globe-trotter who lives in a small beach community in Western Washington. Learn more at www.MindyHalleck.com.
