About the author
From Oscar’s Annual Bash to Cannes’ glitzy Red Carpet. From fabled palaces to rat-infested tunnels. From the floor of the Coral Sea to the vacuum of space. From the rain slicked streets of midnight Paris to the bombed out streets of Beirut at high noon. Writer Carol Hughes has lived and written about sights, adventures and characters that have dazzled audiences, and raised more than a few eyebrows, around the world. Dashing Alpha males, deadly killers, fictional red-haired mermaids, and celluloid heroes – she’s known them all. She’s navigated the killer-infested back alleys of Europe’s grandest cities and the shark-infested corridors of Hollywood’s studios – and picked up enough secrets and tips to make living – and writing – an adventure in itself. Going from award winning documentary filmmaking, to covert intelligence agent, to award winning playwright/poet/TV and Feature Film writer, seemed like an interesting way to learn the business of writing for writer Carol Hughes. And it certainly provided a lot of fascinating story material to work with along the way. Leaving the exotic world of covert intelligence for the equally exotic world of Hollywood Carol has written for Disney, Warner Bros., Universal, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Orion Pictures, MGM, and Nickelodeon/MTV. And along the way she found herself developing in-studio writing workshops for her fellow TV/Feature Film writers. Now she is sharing the secrets behind the simple to learn and use Deep Story ™ writing techniques that can turn even a first-time novelist into an accomplished writer.
