DevriWalls.jpg

Devri Walls guest stars on this week’s episode to talk about the recent film, Venom, story risks, developing YOUR storytelling strengths, writing tips & tricks, and misadventures with electricity.

Devri Walls is an international best selling author. She lives in Meridian, Idaho with her husband, two children and one adorable little mutt. Writing in all things fantasy, she would do just about anything for a working magic wand. Mostly because she's a walking disaster and a wand would be of enormous help...although she'd probably trip and break it. So, there's that. She graduated with a degree in theater and has studied vocal performance most of her life. She now teaches voice lessons when she's not writing novels, cooking dinner, playing taxi, spending time with her amazingly supportive husband or trying to read. http://www.devriwalls.com/
