'Just don't give up'

12 September 2005

'With perseverance, you can do anything you want. Just don't give up - you've got to stick with it. When I started writing I sold my first book very quickly. But after that, no one bought my next five books. For some reason - perseverance, I guess, or just plain stubbornness - I kept on writing, and the 7th book sold and I've been at it ever since... I am just finishing my 60th book - think of the career I would have missed if I had stopped writing when those first five books didn't sell.'
