We have award-winning author, playwright, actor, teacher, and writing consultant, Catherine Ann Jones on the show today. She’s authored a number of consciousness-raising books, plays, film, and television scripts, including, The Christmas Wife (film), Unlikely Angel with Dolly Parton, The Way of Story: the craft & soul of writing (book), Freud’s Oracle (Play), and several others. Unlikely Angel stars Dolly Parton who plays a self-absorbed singer who meets an untimely death and gets an opportunity to earn her wings if she helps a family lost in the tragic death of their Mother find each other again. This should be a Holiday movie tradition. In our interview, we talk about her book, The Way Of Story which offers an integrative approach to writing all forms of narrative. This illustrated book contains evocative insights from the author's own professional journey. The emphasis on the integration of both a solid craft and an experiential inner discovery makes this writing book unique. She helps others on their writing journeys through workshops, consulting, and writing Following her passions for truth-seeking and dramatic self-expression Catherine’s written six books. Her most recent book is a 2013 publication, Heal Your Self With Writing. Catherine was a writer on the popular 90s TV show, Touch by an Angel. The series generally revolved around the "cases" of Monica (played by Roma Downey), an angel recently promoted from the "search and rescue" division, who works under the guidance of Tess (played by Della Reese), a sarcastic boss who is sometimes hard on her young colleague but is more of a surrogate mother than a mentor. The trio of angels is sent to Earth to tell depressed and troubled people that God loves them and hasn't forgotten them. Let's delve into Catherine's writing process and how she helps others achieve excellent stories, shall we? Enjoy my conversation with Catherine Ann Jones.
