  • How writing works. By Roslyn Peter etelin

    by on

    Absolutely fantastic. The best English writing book that I have ever come across. It has something for everyone. She has a hint or information for every query a writer may have. I just love Roslyn's. clarity of thought and her insight into the problems that us budding writers struggle with. I would recommend her book to all levels of writers except young students who will need a modicum of experience to get the most out of her book.
