Want to learn how to write like Rowling?

Join me for a deep dive into the pages of this best-selling novel to discover how and why it works. I'll walk you through the story on a scene-by-scene basis to show you how Rowling included all the key scenes and conventions of the Action genre, raised the stakes in a way appropriate for a middle-grade audience, built an immersive story world full of compelling characters, used red herrings to pull off an awesome plot twist, and so much more!
