Break Point: Ruth Thomas & Mimi Thebo

Broken tap

Ruth Thomas and Mimi Thebo describe what nearly sank their writing careers, and how they turned things around. Ruth Thomas explains how the publishing industry went cool on her genre, and how a 60p discovery at a charity book fair helped her regain her mission and extend her range. Mimi Thebo considers the myriad ways writers can fail, and describes how she came back from failure, and before that, from something even more serious.
