Today is the birthday of one of my writing heros - the wonderful Elizabeth George. She's been an inspiration to me for many years. I've read her with delight, satisfaction and awe at the way she constructs her plots and writes her characters.
If you've never read her book about writing 'Write Away' published by Hodder, then I urge you to devour it. There are so many lessons there for those of us still trying to achieve success in our novels.
It's not so much a writing primer, as a way that one successful novelist approachs writing.
Now I'm waiting to pounce on the new book, This Body of Death, when it appears this year. Long may she continue to write.
