Jaqcui Rose - Writer's Routine #37

Thriller author Jacqui Rose talks us through the story of how her brand new urban gangland story, 'Toxic' got written!


Jacqui has written many books in a huge range of genres, and she's back with new thrillers to add to the 6 already published, that have sold over 100,000 copies. She plans almost nothing. Jacqui simply has a tiny idea, a little flicker of a character, and she'll sit down to write. We talk about this slightly casual way of novel-writing during the show. Also, you can find out why she wanders around the house many times an hour when she's deep into writing. And, you can hear about how she deals with the expectations of a fan-base who know EXACTLY what they want from a Jacqui Rose novel, and why she listens to their reviews the most.


Chuck us a review on iTunes if you fancy.
