Lisa Cach, the award-winning author of more than 20 romantic novels and novellas, will lead the July Writers’ Roundtable “Girl Meets Boy: The Essence of the Romance Novel.”

The free roundtable is 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, at the Bainbridge Public Library.

Cach will share the secrets of writing romance novels, and will cover character growth, emotions, tension and “the naughty bits” of romance writing. She writes across sub-genres including romance, paranormal, historical, contemporary, chick-lit and young adult.

Cach is a two-time finalist for the prestigious RITA Award from the Romance Writers of America. She has hiked the foothills of the Himalaya and sailed the Caribbean as a working crew member of a research schooner. She was a writing instructor aboard the MV Explorer during a 2013 Enrichment Voyage around Europe.

Her book “Dating Without Novocain” was named one of Waldenbooks’ “Best Books of 2002.” Her latest novel is “Great-Aunt Sophia’s Lessons for Bombshells,” published last year.

For more information about the author, visit her website at www.lisacach.com.

The evening includes a question-and-answer period and closes with an opportunity to network with other writers. Roundtables are free and open to writers of all skill levels; no registration is required.

Monthly roundtables take place at the library, 1270 Madison Ave. North.  This will be the last Roundtable until September, however, as Field’s End will take the month of August off.

For more information, visit www.fieldsend.org or call the library at 206-842-4162.

Field’s End, an affiliate of the Bainbridge Public Library, offers workshops, classes and other events focusing on the art, craft and profession of writing.
