Anne Rice, renowned US novelist, best known for her amazing Vampire Chronicles series, was kind enough to review my book, The Mystery of Metamorphosis. Here’s what she has to say:
“Let me share with you the book I’m reading today: The Mystery of Metamorphosis by Frank Ryan. In Ryan, I’ve found another brilliant science writer, like Nick Lane, who makes available to the scientifically challenged some insight into the magnificence and mysteries of biological life on this planet. This is just a wonderful book. If you have, as I do, a million questions about how caterpillars become butterflies, and no science vocabulary to study it, well, this may be the book for you. This is beautifully written. A gem of a book.”
After the review, I wrote to Anne to thank her and we had a very interesting and friendly conversation about writing and the inspiration that makes us want to write.
