Bursting with useful exercises, beautiful illustrations and enlightening quotations from the classic author's novels and letters and written by none other than Austen's five-times-great-niece this book will teach you her methods, tips and tricks, from techniques of plotting and characterisation through to dialogue and suspense.
Whether you're a creative writing enthusiast looking to publish your first novel, a teacher searching for further inspiration for students, or fan seeking insight into Austen's daily rituals, this is an essential companion, guaranteed to satisfy, inform and delight.
