Tense Time Warp: Raise the Tension with Past & Present Tense and Point of View. (Grand Ballroom West)

Do you know what they are and what ones are most effective for your audience?  While it drives purists insane, it drives readers wild with delight. What’s your point of view?

Whether I'm spinning magical stories or numbers around in my head, I keep myself buzzing in the foothills of Northern California. Tea puts the z’s in my buzz, and I'll weave you tales of mythical enchantments and sweet honeyed love. Oh, and I'm always tossing out tax tips too!
