Best Books on Writing

I’ve been asked many times about the process of my writing and thought it would be helpful to list my favourite books on the subject. These books have taught me the craft and helped me to build a writing career. I have many more on my bookshelf and in my ereader, but these titles are outstanding. I recommend them to any aspiring writer, but as all professional writers know—you can never read enough about writing. I’ve added Amazon affiliate links so just click on the covers to grab a copy for your special writer’s bookshelf. Thanks for your support and happy writing!
