In Sometimes the Magic Works, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks shares his secrets for creating unusual, memorable fiction. Spanning topics from the importance of daydreaming to the necessity of writing an outline, from the fine art of showing instead of merely telling to creating believable characters who make readers care what happens to them, Brooks draws upon his own experiences, hard lessons learned, and delightful discoveries made in creating the beloved Shannara and Magic Kingdom of Landover series, The Word and The Void trilogy, and the bestselling Star Wars novel The Phantom Menace. In addition to being a writing guide, Sometimes the Magic Works is Terry Brooks’s self-portrait of the artist. “If you don’t think there is magic in writing, you probably won’t write anything magical,” says Brooks. This book offers a rare opportunity to peer into the mind of (and learn a trick or two from) one of fantasy fiction’s preeminent magicians.

Terry Brooks, best known as the author of the Shannara series, was born in Illinois in 1944. He graduated from Hamilton College and the School of Law at Washington & Lee. Brooks was a practicing attorney for many years before turning to writing fulltime. His first book Sword of Shannara (1977) was the first work of fiction to appear on the New York Times Trade Paperback Bestseller List. It was followed by 14 consecutive bestsellers. Brooks' many Shannara novels create a tapestry that spans generations and rivals Tolkien's Middle Earth in epic scale and heroism. Brooks is the author of a number of other fantasy books, as well as the novelization of Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
