Goodreads asked Essie Fox:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Essie Fox Read. Read. Then read again - all the best in your chosen genre, but also the best in all other genres too. Learn through good work, and then write. Writing is a craft. Don't rush. Think things through. Do it because you love, not necessarily for fame and fortune - which may come, but may not.
