  For the last ten years, I have written novels for a living. Through my work, I have been able to accumulate a fair amount of wealth. I have been lucky because many of my books have received acclaim from literary critics.
  My latest accomplishment is a mystery novel. It is a fictional account of how a clever and accomplished thief, posing as an accountant, gain access of the computer of a large bank. Having extensive knowledge of accounting, ha and a woman accomplice use the bank's computer system to accomplish the biggest theft in history.
  To be a good writer, I think you must find a quiet environment where you can think, preferably one with limited accessibility. Some of my acclaimed work was written at an isolated island hotel off the coast of China. I highly recommend this place.
  The island is accessible only by boat and the hotel is accredited by the Asian Resort Association as a five-star accommodation. Upon arrival, the manager will accompany you to your room and show you how everything works. The staff was trained to accommodate your every need. Any errors in service are purely accidental. The security is excellent and there's little chance of being accosted by strangers.
  Each room has a balcony with a view of the ocean. On the balcony you will find a large leather chair and a study writting desk. The bathroom is very mordern and contains many unique accessories. The most useful bathtub accessory is their mini-desk, which allows you to write while soaking in a tub of hot water.
  To continue being a good writer, you must find a way to relax your mind after a long day of writing. What's my secrets method of relaxtion? Playing the accordion!
  过去十年,我以写小说为生。我的写作为我积累了不少的财富。我实属幸运,因为我写的许多作品都得到了文学评论家的赞赏。
  我最近的成果是一部侦探小说。其内容实属虚构,讲述一个聪明又老练的小偷如何假扮一名会计、进入一家大银行计算机系统的故事。由于在会计学方面知识的渊博,那名小偷和他的女帮凶运用银行的计算机系统完成了历史上最大一桩盗窃案。
  要成为一名好作家,我想你必须找到一处你能思考的安静环境,最好是一处通达有限的地方。我有几本受赞赏的小说就是在中国海岸边一个孤岛上的酒店里创作出来的。我极力推荐此地。
  这座小岛只有坐船才能到达,岛上的酒店被亚洲旅游景点协会确定为五星级住所,一到酒店,经理会亲自陪你去房间,然后教你如何使用房间里的设施。酒店人员受过专业训练,能满足你的一切需求。服务上的任何差错都纯属偶然。此地安全性极高,几乎不会有陌生人上来跟你搭讪。
  每个房间都有眺望大海的阳台。在阳台上你会看到一把大皮椅和一张结实的书桌。浴室相当现代,里面有许多独特的摆设。其中,浴缸里最有用的摆设是一张迷你桌,有了它你就可以一边泡热水澡一边写作了。
  在写了一整天之后,要想继续做一名好作家,你还得有放松大脑的法子。我的放松秘方是什么?拉手风琴。
