Talking murder with Alex Dyke, BBC Radio Solent

Earlier today, I found myself in a small cupboard doubling as BBC Radio Solent’s studio in Newport on the Isle of Wight awaiting my interview with presenter Alex Dyke. The studio was unmanned so it was just me, some whizzy-looking equipment and a set of instructions stuck on the wall. I followed them to the letter and flicked the big red switch, then waited for the system to burst into life. Nothing.

On air, on Vectis Radio

Spent a very enjoyable hour at Vectis Radio chatting to Ian AKA ‘Macca’ about The Killing of Mummy’s Boy. He was intigued by how a chance meeting with a killer on a train proved the inspiration for my first psychological thriller. When I write, I like to get under the skin of my characters. For this book, I had to think like a killer. Ian asked if my husband was in fear of his life and ‘slept with one eye open’.

Here’s what I told him. Enjoy!
