Story Line: Finding Gold in Your Life Story is a practical and spiritual guide to drawing upon your own story and fictionalizing it into your writing. As a Story Consultant and former VP of Current Programs at CBS/Paramount, most of the author’s work with writers has focused on creating standout scripts by elevating story. The secret to telling strong story is digging deep inside yourself and utilizing your own life experiences and emotions to connect with the audience.
From the Author
I wrote Story Line: Finding Gold In Your Life Story for anyone who has a story they want to write but are not sure which platform to write it in. We are all storytellers. We all have a story. After working as a studio executive for over 15 years and learning from the top players in the business, I wrote this book to help writers understand how to "develop" their story.
One writer mentioned that my book takes off where "Save the Cat" left off. This was a huge compliment. She said that Blake's book showed her how to structure her story while my book shows her how to develop it.
I came into my story philosophy after recognizing the common thread between all the shows that were nominated for Emmys, Golden Globes and Oscars. I want to be able to teach writers that they too can write from this place and achieve great heights in their writing careers.

Because Jen makes the effort to personalize her own experiences and create her own story, it's easy for the reader to connect with her on a personal level. The spiritual aspect is quite fascinating and is a welcome addition. As someone who has met Jen and who attends the Friday Night Drink events she co-hosts, I can definitely say that I'm satisfied with her book and look forward to working with her as a client in the near future.
This is money well-spent, and I cannot recommend this book enough.
It's an amazing and thorough approach to delving into your own life to find those moments that help you find your "voice".
I felt like I was stuck until I read this book. As human beings, we all have own our stories, experiences and truths.
This book helps you understand those and delve into the "seemingly" impossible task of bringing those stories/experiences/truths to the page in your own unique writing voice.
"Aha! At last, I get it now!"
It's amazing and I highly recommend it!
