A VOICE OF THE CHESAPEAKE
The life of the Chesapeake Bay is vital to millions of people who live in her immediate area, but she is an ecosystem unique in all the world. Were the Chesapeake to be filled in with dirt and disappear, it would disruptively change the entire planet. It is an aqueous Amazon Forest, just as important to the planet, just as fragile, and just as much at risk.
Through pollution, poor fishery management, and overdevelopment of the Chesapeake Bay’s shores and watershed, this burgeoning ecosystem is mortally threatened.
You can help save the Chesapeake in myriad ways. Robert Blake Whitehill, an Eastern Shore native, can speak to your group about her history, her bounty, her present straits, and how we can work together to preserve and enrich the Chesapeake’s future.
POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER
During his years as an Emergency Medical Technician, Robert Blake Whitehill was called to an incredible variety of human difficulties. From births, to the final moments of the human span, he joined with fellow EMT’s to preserve life from all its threats. Those 911 calls, particularly the encounters that had unhappy outcomes, began to leave scars on Whitehill’s psyche. His home life was soon troubled. Normally an easy-going man, he became volatile with co-workers and friends. It wasn’t long before he had to leave regular duty in a career that was vitally important to his sense of self. You and your group can find out how Whitehill clawed his way back to family, to friends, and to humanity.
WRITING THE THRILLER
Robert Blake Whitehill has done it, and you want to do it, too. Whitehill wants to help you.
If you need a dynamic, transformative meeting about how you will write a thriller that is truly organic to you, your experience, and your truth, then reach out. Whitehill’s experience writing for film, television, and the longform thriller is yours to draw upon.
This is a dialogue, but it’s not about memorizing and imitating somebody else’s style. It is about setting up, subverting, and ultimately fulfilling readers’ expectations of a thriller, but in your way.
Look at your calendar. When do you want to hold your finished book in your hand? When do you want readers to hear your unique voice? Have you waited long enough?
Now look at your phone…
