EP345: Felix Francis — Writing as a Family Business
Felix Francis has continued the legacy of his father Dick Francis’s literary success, selling over 80 million novels in 40 languages. Felix tells us how the books were always a family business, and why the continued success owes so much to knowing the reader wants, and how he works really hard to make the books easy reading. And we announce the winner of the Joe Abercrombie giveaway!
In this episode you will discover:
- How to get inspired by travel.
- How some research is about asking the right person the wrong question.
- And the role that reading aloud plays as part of his writing process.
