SOMETIMES THE MAGIC WORKS Lessons from a Writing Life

by | Read by Dan Woren, Kimberly Farr [Intro.]

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Dan Woren's narration of this advice for aspiring writers from the author of the popular Shannara series is like a low-key lecture. In an unembellished delivery, Brooks draws from his own experience as a highly successful fantasy writer. He delivers references to, and excerpts from, favorable reviews of his books in a matter-of-fact tone that avoids sounding like bragging. The audiobook begins with a recounting of Brooks's experience getting the first novel of his series published and the advice of the editor who worked with him through many months of revisions. Woren's steady tone reflects Brooks's practical approach to the craft of writing and encouragement to those who want to become writers.
