TWO of Ireland's bestselling authors drew inspiration from some timeless classics at a library yesterday, writes Edel O'Connell.

Cathy Kelly and Sinead Moriarty got to grips with a selection of popular fiction from an 18th and 19th century collection at the National Library of Ireland in Dublin.

Moriarty, who has written seven novels, and former journalist Kelly -- whose first novel 'Woman to Woman' went straight to the bestsellers' list -- are participating in the National Library's series of free public interviews on Irish popular fiction in which authors offer advice on how to write a bestseller.

The series, which is hosted by RTE broadcaster John Murray, runs throughout April and will include interviews, debate and discussion on all aspects of writing and publishing.
