EP332: Kia Abdullah — Don’t Shy Away
Kia Abdullah’s latest novel Next of Kin is not just a page-turning thriller, but Kia is using its publication to support the Trussell Trust charity. Kia talks about writing difficult subjects, cultural appropriation, diversity in publishing, and her writing habits. The Two Marks discuss the writer’s commitment to the reader, and are excited to announce that the Bestseller Academy is once again open for applications.
In this episode you will discover:
- How to decide if you’re the right person to write a story.
- How to define success as a writer and the one thing that all writers have in common.
- And how travel feeds a writer’s imagination
