This book is a unique collection of new interviews with award-winning writers - novelists, poets, playwrights and children's writers. Each writer discusses their process, both mental and physical: why they write, who they write for, where and how often they write, their recurring themes, their problems and achievements. The interviews are personal, honest, informative, intriguing and often humorous. Each writer has also chosen a short extract from one of their works as an example of their style. Together their stories offer a fascinating insight into what makes a successful writer. This engaging collection inspires and delights: it is sure to appeal to anyone who loves reading or has ever wanted to be a writer.
