Now here’s a novelist who knows her own mind. In her upcoming feature interview with bestselling
historical novelist Margaret George, the publisher of The Writer, Elfrieda Abbe, poses this question:
about Cleopatra, Mary Queen of Scots, Mary Magdalene and now Queen Elizabeth
I--strong women who have changed the course of history in some way. How do you
decide on a subject?
Ms. George’s reply
“I like somebody who has led an operatic
life. When I go to the opera, I realize I don’t like the comedies. I want the
stage to be littered with corpses.”
for plenty of writing insights and advice from Ms. George in Elfrieda’s
article, which will be in our August issue.
-- Ron Kovach, senior editor, The Writer
