This book will help you:

- get that creative brain in a logical order
- understand what needs to change
- start and get the most out of research
- fit the jigsaw puzzle of your story (fact and fiction) together
- plot the structure of your book

Once you've got your plot plan figured out, this book will guide you through your drafting and revisions, editing constructively and getting support when you feel you are flagging and about to give up.

To BE an author, you need to DO writing. This book will take you a long way into that process and, finally, get that book written.

About the Author

Kaye has been a journalist/presenter/author in factual television and media for many years (BBC News, ITN, Channel 4 News) and has written twelve books.

Kaye wrote ‘For the Love of Sweet William’, which tells a fictionalised tale centred on her job in news media. There, she tells of a bully-boss and a misfit team of production assistants at the BBC, how she fell in love with a movie star and left behind the suburbs of London forever.

Kaye’s other books deal with the link between mind and emotions. She describes how you can get a handle on anxiety and also find out how that's really not as hard as it seems. She also shows how ordinary people around the world can get themselves out of the murky depths of depression by following a few simple rules. By going through personal trauma and turmoil, and earning her own Masters degree in the subject, Kaye can reveal the steps of real emotional control she used herself.

When not writing on the subject of psychology, Kaye continues to create stories based on real people in real situations. ‘Saturday Rendezvous’, ‘In the Right Place’ and ‘A Ring Around You’ are her first feature length film scripts, available to option, while ‘A Tinker’s Tale’ is the first episode of a television script based on the famous John Bunyan, a Baptist preacher in the 1600s, a play of which was staged in Surrey over 20 years ago.

Due out soon, Kaye’s new book ‘Borderline in Sicily’, is the first of a series of revealing memoirs currently in production.
