Book Ends, Episode 2: Lisa Jewell

Welcome to another episode of Book Ends, the podcast for writers and book lovers. I am delighted to welcome Sunday Times best selling author Lisa Jewell as today’s guest.

The author of 10 books, Lisa has had a prolific writing career since the late 1990s when redundancy, a bet with a friend, an admiration for Nick Hornby and “a vague flicker of interest” in writing all combined to set her on the path to becoming one of the most popular authors in the UK.

On today’s episode Lisa talks about her life as a established writer with a lot of inspiring and useful advice, such as:

  • What happens when you run out of ideas?
  • How do you learn to write a book without freaking out?
  • Minimising access to the Internet for maximum writing efficiency!

You can listen to the podcast here:

Or you can download it in iTunes 

Or download the file separately to your computer.

I hope you enjoy this episode and thank you again Lisa for such an inspiring conversation!
