Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Like all novelists, I get my characters in trouble. They get in fights. Sometimes knives or guns are involved. But like many novelists, the closest I’ve come to fighting is watching my sons’ karate lessons. Carla Hoch, on the other hand, is the real deal. She does Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and she does it well. And she teaches about fighting to novelists! I am super-excited to hear about Carla’s book, Fight Write: How to Write Believable Fight Scenes!

Carla, please tell us about your book.

Fight Write is designed to help writers with all facets of creating a fight scene. Broken up into five “Rounds,” Fight Write teaches what to consider before writing the scene, the biology, psychology, and terminology of fighting, as well how to choose a fighting style and weapon for your character.
