My Top 5… author websites

There are some authors I love to read, there are others who I read because I learn something from their books. Here’s my list of the author websites I find useful. 1 Kate Mosse Heaps of writing advice, interesting snippets about her writing life and her latest books. Lots of depth, lots of content to explore. She blogs and tweets regularly. Click on the link ‘Kate’s Advice to Writers’ for writing advice from Kate and her creative writing teacher husband, Greg. To read an interview with Kate Mosse talking with The Independent about her new book, The Taxidermist’s Daughter, click here. To read why Kate Mosse says her skill is storytelling, rather than literary fiction, click here to read an interview with The Guardian.
