The insights into the creative process of successful authors is so useful. I may not follow them myself but as a writer it is fascinating to be allowed a glimpse into others' thought processes.

I enter this competition often so it's fascinating to read the winning entries. It's not only that it's competent writing, the authors have contemporary voices and that is the key to publishing success.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most powerful writers I've ever read, 14 April 2014

This is chick lit at its very best - saying what women never dare to say but probably all feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only I could write like this!, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The heading says it all, really. That mix of biography and history, of using an idea to connect something in the everyday to something in the past or in a different subject area is bewitching

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was interested in this book because I would like to write for Cambridge Readers myself. I was disappointed by the quality of the narrative which seemed to me both trivial and lacking in any literary merit. Writing doesn't have to be prosaic to communicate well.
