Mr. Lukeman is himself author of the bestselling The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide to Staying out of the Rejection Pile (Simon & Schuster), already part of the curriculum in many universities, and of the recently published The Plot Thickens: 8 Ways to Bring Fiction to Life (St. Martins Press), a selection of the Writers Digest Book Club and already a national bestseller.

He earned his B.A. with High Honors in English and Creative Writing from Brandeis University, cum laude.
THE FIRST FIVE PAGES: A WRITER'S GUIDE TO STAYING OUT OF THE REJECTION PILE (Simon & Schuster)
One of the few books on manuscript preparation and style written from the perspective of an active publishing industry professional. A bestseller, serialized in Poets & Writers, The Writer (3 installments), and published in the UK and Japan.
THE PLOT THICKENS: 8 WAYS TO BRING FICTION TO LIFE (St Martins Press) From the literary agent and author of the bestselling The First Five Pages, comes a groundbreaking new book on plot development. The art of plot development has become synonymous with having a "great idea." But a great idea is merely an abstraction without characterization, journey, suspense, conflict, and context. Analyzing the elements of classic storytelling, The Plot Thickens enables beginning and advanced writers alike to consider how these elements can combine--in many heretofore unimagined ways--to produce the kind of plot that will make their work transcendent. A veritable fiction-writing workshop, writers will find it impossible to walk away from this invaluable guide without boundless new ideas.
