Creating Believable Villains: Writing Workshop (In Person)

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Westerville Public Library


Follow in the footsteps of Professor Moriarty, Hannibal Lecter, and Darth Vader and learn how to turn your one-dimensional villain into a full-blown baddie that your readers will love to hate.

Whether you're an aspiring or established writer, this workshop led by sci-fi, fantasy, and romance author Maria V. Snyder will help you hone your craft.


Maria V. Snyder switched careers from meteorologist to novelist when she began writing the New York Times best-selling Study Series (Poison Study, Magic Study, Fire Study, Shadow Study, Night Study and Dawn Study) about a young woman who becomes a poison taster. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, Maria dreamed of chasing tornados and even earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Meteorology from Pennsylvania State University. Unfortunately, she lacked the necessary forecasting skills. So she worked as an environmental meteorologist until boredom and children drove her to write down the stories that have been swirling around in her head. Writing, proved to be more enjoyable than meteorology, and Maria returned to school to earn a Master of Arts degree in fiction writing from Seton Hill University. Unable to part company with Seton Hill and its wonderful writing program, Maria is currently a teacher and mentor for the MFA program. Learn more about Maria and the books that she has written.
