Bringing the Past to Life

Tuesday 23 October, 7.30pm to 9pm at Charville Library

Bestselling novelists Tracy Rees and Gill Paul discuss their working methods. They will talk about where new ideas come from and how to decide if they will work; whether they plan plots in advance or let the story find its own way in the writing; when to show new works to a reader, and which reader(s) to choose; and some thoughts on creating memorable characters. When writing historical fiction, how much research do they do and how much influence do the facts have on the story? It will be a lively discussion for anyone interested in what turns the germ of an idea into a published novel, with a Q&A at the end.
