    Beginners only If you have never read a work of historical fiction or never done any creative writing, this book might be useful. Glad I borrowed this and didn't pay for it. There are much better books on this topic such as Emma Darwin's. Beginners only If you have never read a work of historical fiction or never done any creative writing, this book might be useful.

    Good Quick Introduction This book is by no means exhaustive in its treatment of the subject matter, but it is an excellent place to begin to get the steps down with a few key examples. This is exactly what the author intended, and she achieves her aim exceedingly well. Even providing links to her website and templates to get you started.
