Goodreads asked J.M. Harvey:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

J.M. Harvey Read, read, read, and then read some more. Read what you love then read what the critics love. And pay attention! What works, what doesn't, what you loved, and what you hated. It's all research, of the most pleasant variety!
