A DROITWICH writer has put together a book revealing the secrets of successful authors.

The book Celebrity Authors’ Secrets, features interviews with some of the world’s best known living authors from Bernard Cornwell, and Terry Pratchett, to Barbara Taylor Bradford, Jeffrey Archer, and Joanne Harris.

Stephanie Hale, a mother of three of Hanbury, works with some of the richest authors in the UK, helping them to write and market their books.

She said: “It’s not a lifestyle for the faint-hearted. These authors are like the gold medallists at the Olympics. The extremes of effort and endurance can be just as punishing.”

‘Celebrity Authors’ Secrets’ includes candid interviews with the authors, and became a best-seller on Amazon before it was even on sale to the public.

‘Celebrity Authors’ Secrets – The World’s Greatest Living Authors Reveal How They Sell Millions of Books’ by Stephanie J Hale is being published on May 30, and will be available to buy from Amazon and all good bookshops.
