EP222: Sarah Hilary – Crime and Emotional Truth
Sarah’s writing has been described as “downright dangerous” by Mick Herron, and with her new novel Never Be Broken she tackles some very difficult and dangerous issues indeed. She tells us how she approaches polarising subjects and the kind of research and due diligence she takes before her first draft.
In This Episode You Will Discover…
- How the crime genre can remind us of the things we often forget
- How the emotional impace of a real life event inspired her new book
- And how she started writing as a kind of improvisation game as a child
