About the Author

Kate Grenville the award-winning author of Lilian's Story . She has an M.A. degree in Creative Writing and has run writing workshops at universities in the USA and Australia since 1981.


This step-by-step guide by Grenville, an Australian author of fiction and teacher of writing, takes the novice writer through the complete process of writing fiction. Urging the use of intuitive, instinctive thinking, Grenville encourages the development of raw fiction from past experiences through brief exercises on dialog, voice, character, etc. The exercises build upon one another as the writer works through the process. Each chapter contains many examples of different writing styles to assist the user in developing his or her own style. The level of this book is basic and fundamental; Gabriele L. Rico's Writing the Natural Way (Tarcher, 1983) covers similar material in more depth and detail. Recommended for large public libraries with a demand for how-to-write material.-- Kathy Ellerton, Thomas Jefferson Lib. System, Jefferson City, Mo.
