Hi Shan,
There are many great books on fiction writing, so I'd start there, regardless of genre. Donald Maas, James Scott Bell, Ann Lamott to name just a few. Study the craft but the best thing is to start writing! See what comes out and edit later. Good Luck! (less)

I will definitely put it on my TBR pile! I think you'll find my more recent novels, The Things We Knew, and The Memory Of You, quite 'deep'. :) But actually all my books tackle the deeper issues of life. It's kind of my thing. LOL. (less)

Hadn't read Ken Follett in years, but after my husband raved about this I picked it up and was immediately enthralled. Fantastic story telling. The only trouble is, now I have to read the whole series, and at 1,000 pages each I may be here a while . ...more
