February 7 Zoom Meeting: Writing Sex Scenes

With Valentine’s Day approaching, what better time to learn how to write sex scenes to advance your plot and increase reader investment? Let New York Times bestselling romance author Roni Loren and book coach/editor Dawn Alexander tell you how at our Feb. 7 Zoom meeting.

Roni Loren is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a two-time RITA Award winner, and a HOLT Medallion winner. She wrote her first romance novel at age 15, when she discovered writing about boys was far easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has gotten better. Roni holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, but now writes full time from her cozy office in North Texas, where she puts her characters on the therapy couch. She is also co-host of the RAD Reading podcast.

Dawn Alexander is a developmental editor and story coach who works with authors ranging from debuts to Amazon Top 100, USA Today, and New York Times bestsellers. She loves helping clients strengthen their stories and refine their voices. Before editing, she spent 18 years teaching public high school. Now, she lives in Texas with two college-age kids, one large dog, a bratty bird, and a handsome husband. When she’s not bouncing around ideas with clients or giving feedback on pages, you can find her reading—usually mystery, suspense, or romance—or feeding her superhero obsession with Marvel movies.
