Two books have been published by local authors that will help and inspire fellow writers.
Malcolm E Brown is an award-winning author of over 90 publications and a columnist.
He is widely travelled, a retired pharmacist and consultant and experienced mentor. He has three degrees including in research in natural and social science. His doctorate is from the University of East Anglia, UK. That combination of qualifications and experience is extremely unusual.
Mr Brown has particular experience of analysing texts. He has kept writers’ commonplace books for 40 years.
He searched those and other personal journals, to mine topics that goad writers’ imagination, informed by the latest Google Zeitgeist of popular web searches and journalistic maxims such as “the 3 L’s”: lust, loathing and lucre.
“A valuable bonus is advice especially for writers aspiring to their first publication. But experienced authors could also benefit.
“Practical tips abound. Topics include finding time and ideas, non-fiction articles and books, short stories, novels and poetry,” said Mr Brown.
“Winning Words A writers’ helper and commonplace book to stimulate imagination” £11.81, by Malcolm E Brown.
