Episode Nine - M W Craven

June 7, 2021

Carlisle-born M. W. Craven took up a probation officer role in Whitehaven in 1999. Seventeen years later, at the rank of assistant chief officer, he became a full-time author. The Puppet Show, the first in a two-book deal he signed with the Little, Brown imprint, Constable in 2017, was released this June. It has sold in numerous foreign territories and has been optioned for TV by Studio Lambert.

In this episode we chat about his publishing journey, Washington Poe and of course the much loved character of Tilly!

Mike's latest book, Dead Ground, is now available on Amazon or at all bookshops.

Episode Eight - International Best Selling author, Peter James

Episode Eight - International Best Selling author, Peter James

May 24, 2021

This week I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with one of my favourite crime writers Peter James. How we managed to keep it an hour is beyond me as I could have chatted to him all day! As you would expect, Peter is a natural storyteller, and he shared with me some insights into the character that is Roy Grace, how he works closely with Brighton police to build authenticity and we also chatted about theITV show, Grace, the stage show of Looking Good Dead that starts in July. I couldn't resist asking him about my favourite of his books The House On Cold Hill and he shared a few stories about how the plot mirrored real life in a house he used to own! We also covered his love of animals, the input he gets from his readers and he shares what he is reading at the moment. Peter has a short story coming out on 27th May, featuring Roy Grace 'Wish You Were Dead' as part of the initiative to get us all reading. I can't wait and I do hope you enjoy this episode.

We also touched upon her next book, Her New Best Friend which is now available for pre-order.
