Let me tell you about the creative writing gene … and F.C. Malby

A big thanks to the wonderful writer F.C.Malby for inviting me to be a guest writer on her blog to  write about why I set up the online creative writing school www.writingclasses.co.uk in the post  “Let me tell you about the creative writing gene …”

cropped-auden-header-ii1 F.C.Malby is the author of Let Me Take You To The Castle, which was released in December 2012 and has been nominated for The People’s Book Awards. A short story The Bench was published in March 2013 and her short fiction has been longlisted in The ref=sib_dp_kd New Writer Annual Prose and Poetry Prize.

I have just started reading Let Me Take You To The Castle and am gripped already! It is set in Prague and Letovice and “is a tale of deception, distrust and the need for redemption in the aftermath of a regime in which no one can be trusted, not even someone you thought you knew.” I’ll let you know what I think when I finish but so far so very good 🙂

Meanwhile, do check out Fiona’s blog, it’s full of all sorts of useful information to do with writing and books – oh yes, and I’ve written about why I set up www.writingclasses.co.uk …. http://fcmalby.wordpress.com/

    Just read your guest post, Marianne. I have got F. C. Malby’s book ‘Take Me to the Castle’ but haven’t read it yet. Will be interested to know what you think of it.

    I’ve just bought it so I will read it eventually. I have 2 weeks and a day off from Friday so I may get a lot of reading done in these holidays I hope.
