Creative Differences and Other Stories

Graeme Simsion

If not for money, then maybe for love.

Three years ago, Emily was a struggling literary author when she met Scott, a struggling screenwriter. Combining her elegant writing with his gripping story, the pair crafted a novel that became an international bestseller—and fell in love along the way.

Now her latest manuscript is stuck, his solo novel has flopped and their relationship is on the rocks. The situation is made even messier when an aspiring writer with her own agenda gets involved. Can Emily and Scott work it out and create another hit?

Creative Differences is a wry and incisive study of love, writing and creativity from internationally bestselling author Graeme Simsion. It’s accompanied by a selection of stories from across his career, including the first appearance of Don Tillman from the Rosie novels.
