She has written two previous Hannah books, and as she embarked on her third, Hannah and the Tomorrow Room, she decided to keep a journal, from which Writing Hannah developed Rather than simply writing a how to book on writing for children, the author decided to share the process itself, taking us on a journey into the heart of literary creation. We follow her philosophical scrutiny of the world, of the nature of character and the making of fiction. She examines all aspects of writing, including point of view, narrative structure and language, but mediated through her own experience - her hesitations, false starts and growing confidence.
