"Sokoloff's advice is spot-on, and her teaching style is direct and effective. A must-have book for authors and screenwriters."

"Sokoloff is a generous mentor with thegifted ability to address a storyteller's practical concerns whileencouraging artistic integrity and every author's unique voice.  Onlythree of my half dozen novels have been written with her unwittingguidance, but I can guarantee that with this book at my fingertips, allmy future work- and my reading audience - will benefit from her advice.Recommended without reservation. "
