EP331: Mick Finlay — Psychology, Murder & The Writer
Mick Finlay is the author of the Arrowood series of crime novels set in 1890s London, and in his latest book Arrowood and the Meeting House Murders, he explores the dark side of human psychology, and tells us how teaching psychology has helped him as a writer. And this week’s digression from the Two Marks is on the joys of car boot sales and Beanie Babies.
In this episode you will discover:
How studying psychology can help you as a writer.
Tips for historical research.
And what working on a market stall in the Portobello Road taught him about human nature.
