I read through this last night pretty quickly. Elizabeth Berg is an author who has written several novels. This book is her idea of how to be a writer. It talks about her story and what she thinks you should do to become a writer.
You can read some of that for free by visiting her website here--
Amazon lists about two dozen books that she wrote. You can find those here--
You can find "Escaping into the Open" at a local library, or on Amazon here-
You can also read the reviews. They seem pretty positive for the most part. I personally was not as drawn in as some of the other reviewers were. However, it was the second book I'd read last night so I might have just been tired. That's why I encourage you to follow the links and decide for yourself.
