Catching up with my emails after my weekend in Scarborough I came across an entry in a Writers Almanac newsletter. If like me you're on the mature side of life then it's encouraging.
Rosamund Pilcher's most recent book was Winter Solstice, published in 2000. She told the trade publication Book Reporter then that she was unlikely to write another book, adding, "But we shall see." Pilcher turned 87 on 22nd September.
She said, "Budding authors, be self-disciplined. It is a lonely job. And LISTEN to experts."
