The WriteOnSisters started this blog to share their knowledge, experience, successes and failures, straight up with no bull. The result is a site full of helpful information on writing craft, the road to publication, and the writers’ life. Whether you’re a pantser or a plotter, a newbie or a veteran, there’s something here for you.
Your Writing Sisters
Heather Jackson – Novel Writing from a Screenwriter’s Perspective
Heather is a freelance screenwriter based in Toronto. She attended Ryerson University’s Radio & Television Arts program and the Canadian Film Centre’s Prime Time Television Writing program, which led to a career penning cartoons and tween dramas that are broadcast all over the world. Recently she transferred her screenwriting skills to a new medium: video games. She’s currently writing, developing, and story editing narrative-based games such as LongStory and the upcoming VR game The Last Taxi.
Heather is also writing two YA novels: PSYCHO SMART and DEMONS DON’T DO LOVE. Neither is autobiographical. Mostly.
When she’s not writing, Heather can be found bouncing with the Ryerson University Trampoline Club in pursuit of the preposterous goal of becoming a semi-competitive trampolinist by forty.

Robin Rivera – Craft Tips with deep Historical Roots
Robin trained as a professional historian on the West Coast. Her studies led her to working as a museum curator, an educator, a shipwreck hunter, a curriculum developer and media consultant. After a lifetime of writing nonfiction, Robin loves the freedom of writing fiction. However, old habits die hard so she always grounds her young adult fiction in solid historical research. Her projects include: a novel set in an alternative vision of mid-Victorian Egypt, and a heist novel set in Italy. She is currently working on a YA Gothic retelling of the 14th century novel, The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio.
Connect with Robin on Twitter @RobinRWrites, Facebook, Goodreads or on Pinterest.
