Laura Jane Williams, author of 'Our Stop' - Journalist and memoir writer talks debut novels, rom-com characters and dirty drafts.
Laura Jane Williams is a prolific journalist, and successful memoir writer - her books, 'Becoming' and 'Ice Cream for Breakfast', talk about her twenties and quest for love. We chat about the arrogance of memoir-writing - what makes her think her story is worth reading? Also, you can hear the strange methods she uses to get into character, and the exact moment she knows them inside-out.
'Our Stop' has been called 'the feminist rom-com of the summer', and we talk about what that means, and how she made sure the men in her story were three-dimensional and believable. Also, we chat about why Laura is able to write the thoughts in most peoples heads, better than most people actually can.
