Goldster Conversations: Purpose, Passion, Grit with Lucinda

with Emma Darwin Author of This is Not a Book About Charles Darwin

30 January 2024

Emma Darwin’s latest book, This is Not a Book About Charles Darwin, was described by Saga Magazine as ‘a refreshingly frank, witty, eloquent memoir-cum-biography’. The Times called her debut novel, The Mathematics of Love, ‘that rare thing, a book that works on every conceivable level’ and it’s probably unique in being nominated for both the Commonwealth Writers’ Best First Book, and the Romantic Novelists’ Association Novel of the Year Awards. The Mail on Sunday called her Sunday Times bestselling second novel, A Secret Alchemy, ‘powerful and utterly convincing’, while her Get Started in Writing Historical Fiction is described by publisher Scott Pack as ‘essential reading’. She has taught creative writing for the Open University, Oxford University and Goldsmiths, mentors individual writers, and blogs at This Itch of Writing.
