Deborah M Pratt Co-Produced the hit TV show "Quantum Leap" garnering acclaim and fans in multiple generations.  Her 5 book series "The Vision Quest" is a masterpiece of Science Fiction.  The series intricate storylines, rich characters and cleverly woven ethical questions create a world that pulls you in deep and keeps you riveted.  I'm a big fan. 

In this episode Deborah discusses how to discover the reasons why characters behave the way they do, creating a world based in a unique set of laws, the ethics od genome research, the theme of living with fear, missed opportunities for writing inspiration, the discipline and speed of writing for TV, creating a bible of rules that other writers can follow, creating story devices, researching for story, asking questions to uncover holes in your story and problems with your characters, creating a global story with spiritual underpinnings, traditional publishing vs. self publishing and much, much more..
