Thelma ZirkelbachThelma Zirkelbach

character building through verbal and non-verbal communication

If you read a paragraph of dialogue without attribution, could you tell if the speaker was a man or a woman?  Dialogue can help develop character.  So do movements, mannerisms and facial expressions.  Even clothing or home décor can show character traits.  Join Thelma Zirkelbach in an exploration of character building through verbal and non-verbal communication.

Thelma Zirkelbach is a multi-published author of romance, essay, memoir and poetry.  She is also a speech pathologist who works with young children.  Communication is essential to both her professions.  She is especially interested in dialogue and non-verbal communication.  Her latest release, Stumbling Through the Dark,  is not a romance novel; it’s a memoir of her husband’s final year and how they faced it together.  (It does contain romance and sex—how could she resist?)
