EP334: Piers Torday — What Matters is the Book
Piers Torday is the award-winning author of the extraordinary The Last Wild trilogy for children, and he’s back with an amazing prequel The Wild Before. Piers’ writing comes from a lifelong passion for wildlife and for giving voice to characters that might not otherwise be heard. He also tells us about the Paul Torday prize for debut novelists over 60 and why it’s not age that matters when writing.
In this episode you will discover:
The delicate balance between getting a message across without being preachy.
Tips for writing prequels.
And why you don’t have to be a hot twenty-something with a huge Instagram following to be a debut author.
