SIM Ep 510 Chops 209: Jane Thynne is in Widowland

Best-selling author Jane Thynne's upcoming novel, Widowland, was inspired by reactions to Jane herself, after the death of her husband, fellow best-selling scribe Philip Kerr. She chats to Hannah about Widowland, and why some alternative histories are closer to reality than we might think, as well as the status of widows, in the past and today. Jane also chats refreshingly openly about her experiences of losing her husband, and how it has altered her attitudes to life, possessions and the wisdom of choosing computer passwords. Widowland, written under the pen name CJ Carey, is published on June 10.
