Anne Perry stands tall not only for earning her place among the world's most widely read mystery writers, but as the author of the longest sustained crime series by a living author. When it comes to literary fiction in the mystery genre, no one does it better than Anne Perry. The New York Times called her writing first rate, and the London Times named her one of the 100 Masters of Crime. With nearly 28 million books in print, she has more than earned these honors.
Her expertise and warmth come through strongly in this, her second master class of writing: Plotting to Enrich Your Back Story. Her first instructional guide, An Introduction to Writing, succeeded because Anne used her master class to guide aspiring writers through the all-important basics of fiction writing. In this, her second guide, the writing journey continues with a comprehensive discussion of what constitutes the heart of fiction: back story and plot. In this guide, Anne will explain the importance of both.
