"Fighting Demons: Internal versus External Conflict" with Jaye Wells

In this talk, bestselling author Jaye Wells explores the distinctions between internal and external conflicts, as well as the importance of combining the two to create riveting fiction.

Jaye Wells is the author of several speculative fiction novels. She is best known for writing urban fantasy with her USA Today bestselling Sabina Kane series and the Prospero's War series. In 2012, she won the Best Urban Fantasy Reviewers' Choice Award from RT Book Reviews for Blue-Blooded Vamp, and her novels Dirty Magic and Silver-Tongued Devil were also nominated for the award.

Before she became an author, Jaye was a magazine editor and freelance writer. She earned her B.A. in Art History from Southern Methodist University, and holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She belongs to International Thriller Writers, Sisters in Crime, and Horror Writers Association.

In addition to writing, Jaye is also a sought-after speaker and teacher on the topics of writing craft and the writing life. She has served as faculty for the Paradise Lost writing retreat, taught writing at sea for Cruising Writers, and also ran the writers' workshop for FenCon. Jaye also serves as a mentor for Horror Writers Association's mentorship program.

When Jaye is not writing or teaching, she loves to travel and cook. She lives in Texas.
