Marianne Kavanagh - Writer's Routine #34
Thirty Four, let's get some more.
This week, we're hearing Marianne Kavanagh's Writer's Routine! She has just published her 3rd novel, 'Should You Ask Me', which is a story of mystery, of murder and of history. In this episode I describe it as 'villainous Countryfile' - which in the best way, tells you everything you need to know.
Marianne has worked around words for a long time, writing novels, columns and working as a journalist, and she thinks very careful about the words on her page. We talk a lot about language, about the tone of the time she's set the story in, and how much research went into it.
'Should You Ask Me', tells the story of 86 year old Mary, who in the early 1940's in the midst of World War II, commits to a decades-old crime. It's about her finally revealing story, taking great pride in doing it, and how it affects the young Policeman that hears it, that will keep you turning the page.
