Keynote Speaker Rachel Vail: Building Character- Creating Believable Kids

Our final keynote for the conference was Author Rachel Vail. Rachel shared insights and stories from her children and childhood to show us how to make believable characters and stories. She talked about how books show us other layers, perspectives, experiences and a mirror to ourselves as writers and readers.

She also talked about how memories can be powerful tools in creating honest and true characters and work. She shared how she wrote her book PIGGY BUNNY (which I'm going to get as soon as possible).
