These are great. People submitted their first page or so and got feedback from Mary. The feedback she gives addresses issues in their submission but can be helpful to all writers because a lot of it is common problems.

About Karen Krueger

I write for teens when I'm not chasing after two cute kids. I love to sing and eat cereal (though not at the same time), and I most certainly am not a vampire because I'm addicted to sunshine.
