Interview with the Authors:

So what makes Writers on Writing so special?

Todd Keisling: Writers On Writing is unique in that it provides a collection of essays from both newcomers and established professionals, providing a wide range of perspectives on the art and craft of writing.

Tell us more about you essay in Writers on Writing.

Todd Keisling: My essay "Never Look Away: Confront Your Fears in Fiction" is an anecdotal look at an important lesson I learned early on in my writing career: That you shouldn't look away from your subject matter, no matter how disturbing it is to you. Looking away does a disservice to your story, and by proxy, your reader.

Why should authors read Writers on Writing?

Jack Ketchum: It's rich in the variety of subjects discussed, written by people who know whereof they speak.

Todd Keisling: There are decades of experience contained within the book's pages, covering multiple genres. I can't think of a more diverse collection for the established--or aspiring--writing professional.

Do you have other non-fiction books authors should try out?

Jack Ketchum: Stephen King's ON WRITING and DANSE MACABRE. William Goldman's ADVENTURES IN THE SCREEN TRADE. Syd Field's SCREENPLAY.

Todd Keisling: A few come to mind: Stephen King's On Writing, Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, and Ariel Gore's How to Become a Famous Writer Before You're Dead.
