Writing Tips

Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way. EL Doctorow

I’ve been writing full time for many years now and I greatly enjoy sharing what I know or have found out over the years with newer writers. I’m still learning – every day – but I hope that you will find this section of the website useful and interesting.  In Writing Coach, there is a step by step guide to writing popular fiction and getting published. There is lots more about writing and getting published on my blog, and if there is anything I haven’t covered  that you’d like to know, please feel free to contact me.

As both a writer and a reader, I’m most interested in how other writers work. So I’ve interviewed some of my friends in books in My Writing Life. Do they use a laptop or write long hand? Do they write in the morning or in the evening? I will add to these interviews on a regular basis – I do hope you enjoy them. I love writing quotations and I’ve also collected together some of my favourites for you. Happy reading and writing!
