9780060560447: Write Away: One Novelist's Approach to Fiction and the Writing Life

Elizabeth George is one of the most successful writers of crime fiction in the world. Her twelve novels have appeared on bestseller lists in the UK, USA and Australia, and several of them have been dramatised by BBC Television as the Inspector Lynley Mysteries. She has also written a collection of short stories and edited a crime anthology.

Now she shares this wealth of experience with would-be novelists, and with crime fiction fans. Drawing extensively on her own work, and that of other bestselling writers including Stephen King, Harper Lee, Dennis Lehane and many others, she illustrates her points about plotting, characterisation and technique with great clarity.

She also includes extracts from her own Journals - the diaries she keeps as writes each of her novels - and these give us an unprecedented insight into the creative mind, with all its highs and lows.
