Honesty, grace - and two novels on the side

An event that was particularly useful to inspiring writers, the majority of the session was an opportunity to pose questions to author Catherine O'Flynn, who took the time to answer them with honesty and grace, without any fear of possibly looking stupid.

Whilst the viewers learned a lot about the writing process O'Flynn used, it was told through funny anecdotes and stories prompted by questions from the audience rather than a straight cut interview, creating a much friendlier atmosphere and an overall feeling that it is possible for anyone to write something, not just the greats.

A thoughtful, insightful woman, O'Flynn appeared as an everyday person who just happened to have written two novels on the side.
