Owen Nicholls, author of 'Love, Unscripted' - Debut novelist talks pop culture, movie journalism and writing romance.
Owen Nicholls is a pop-culture obsessive, having written for Empire and NME, the mission for his first novel was 'High Fidelty for movies'.
Originally thinking it may be a screenplay, instead he enjoyed the space and time writing a novel gave him. For Owen, a screenplay needs to be tight, purposeful and focused, he thinks that with novels you can take time to discover your characters and plots.
'Love, Unscripted' is the tale of a failed romance, and trying to figure out where it all went wrong - we talk about how Owen learned the tricks to write a novel, how he figured out what his characters needed to be, and also how he used his favourite films to help tell the story.
