Quoted... from the internet!

I received an e-mail yesterday from an author asking if she could quote me in her book - some writing advice I posted yesterday to someone writing historical fiction an e-mail loop. So I agreed - of course!

Here's my quote:
'Period detail must enhance and not distract from the story. All the other bones of good fiction must be there.'

The book is about how to write for children.

Makes me think of all the historical authors I enjoyed reading as a child - Rosemary Sutcliffe, Henry Treece, Jill Paton Walsh...
