    Product Description

    Product Description

    The story of a young girl's recovery from depression, Writing Therapy has been described by Rev. Richard Coles (BBC Newsnight Review and Saturday Live) as 'a beautifully-angled novel about growing up and breaking down'. The multi-layered book-within-a-book also cleverly describes the creative process of writing a novel and explores the often blurred relationship between fact and fiction.

    More About the Author

    Responsible for adding to the world's population, blogging about it and then writing a book telling others how to do it, Tim Atkinson has accidentally become both an author and something of an authority on child care.

    Having given up full-time paid employment to stay at home and keep an eye on the children, Tim was casting around for part-time, work-from-home opportunities when a publisher approached him and asked if he'd like to write some text books.

    The rest, as they say, is history. Or it would be if he wasn't still doing it. Current projects include a book on blogging and a new novel.

    Tim Atkinson has an MA in Education and a Diploma in Creative Writing. Oh and a certificate for swimming.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A book about writing a book about... 13 April 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I read this book cold. I had no preconceptions on the subject matter, it did not come onto my radar through my usual "you may also like..." channels. But I am very, very glad that I bought it.

    This book is a journey. It's one of those journeys that picks you up and carries you along. You don't want to stop, you need to find out where you're going. And when you get there, you've enjoyed the whole process. As with all journeys, there are bits you find uncomfortable, bits that make you think, bits that make you laugh out loud, but the whole journey is one you'll remember. The journey the main character takes is a profound one, a moving one and - ultimately - one that makes you look hard at yourself. Would I have done anything differently? How would that affect me?

    Tim's style of writing is a pleasure to read, it flows from the screen, almost reading itself.

    And the final words? Perfect.

    4.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down. 11 April 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I read a lot and at times I've wondered if this has numbed me to the joy of a good book. I was wrong as Writing Therapy blew me away. It entered my mind in the first few pages and I was compelled to read to the end. At times I was there in the book imagining my life, my characters.

    To be honest this isn't the type of book I go for, I read it on a whim you could say. I'm so glad I did.

    The book didnt finish at the last page my mind is still very much thinking, exploring itself.

    I'm looking forward to the author's next book.
