Write!: Find Your Truth In Fiction by Gerald DiPego is a beginning writer's handbook. The author is a well-known novelist, playwright, and screenwriter, who has won several awards and worked with top talents such as John Travolta, Anthony Hopkins, Juliette Binoche, Kevin Costner, Jennifer Lopez, and many others.
