How to Write a Blockbuster
Writing a ‘How to’ book – let alone one with ‘Blockbuster’ in the title - isn’t something I’d have volunteered for, but once commissioned by Allison & Busby to contribute to their series of writers’ guides, I thoroughly enjoyed it. There’s no doubt that the person who most benefits from this sort of book is the one who writes it!
I particularly wanted the book to be a fun read as well as useful, so it’s full of anecdotes and observations about my own life as a writer, from my childish amateur efforts to final success.
It’s interesting that out of all my books this is the one my husband likes best because, he says, he ‘can hear me talking’. Which is good, because that was the idea.
