Ah, the serendipity of accidents.

Sir Alexander Fleming and penicillin. Archimedes in his bath.

Plastic. Xrays. Cornflakes.

Your little brother's birth.

Cue Sue Wighton: accidental writer. Sue knows a bit about accidents and serendipity. She knows a bit about writing. And she asks tricky questions.

Do prawns have legs? What is the meaning of life and what does it have to do with towels? Why are words so endlessly fascinating?

Are you - like Sue - baffled, bemused and bamboozled by the happy and not so happy accidents of modern life, technology, change, mobile phone plans, strange exercise programs, air travel?

Would you like to understand a little more about the craft of writing and how to get better at it?

If you answered 'yes', to both those questions, then Accidental Writer is the book for you. When life gets you down, Sue's wry observations will pick you up, shake you all about and make you laugh. And isn't that what we all need right now?
