Penny Vincenzi Quotes

  1. I haven’t the faintest idea what is going to happen, ever. I just get the kernel of the idea, which in this case was supposing a company was about to go under, and then the characters wander in. I never have any idea what is going to happen at the end, I truly don’t, which is why they are so long.
  2. I don’t agonise. I do have terrible days when I realise I have gone down a completely blind alley and I’ve got to come back. The only cure is to press the delete button, I’m afraid. I once deleted 20,000 words, and I felt much better after that.
  3. I will never stop writing. I will die at my desk.

Penny Vincenzi was a British writer. A best-selling novelist, she wrote 17 novels, two collections of stories, and she sold over seven million copies of her novels. Her books included Old Sins and Wicked Pleasures.
