Christa Faust is an author we dig. Her punchy hard-boiled novels from a female point of view have made her something of a female Mickey Spillane. Starting February 21st, she’ll be teaching an online class, TOUGH DAMES: WRITING WOMEN WHO KICK ASS. Designed to help people create strong female characters in crime fiction, it would be difficult not to learn something from Christa.
