Crime-writer Mark Hill tells us how he goes about his day!
Radio-producer Mark Hill has a life-long love of crime fiction, and spotting the tricks and traits of the genre forced his hand to write a book of his own!
'Two O'Clock Boy' tells the story of a killer seemingly getting revenge on everyone in a children's home many years ago. It's the first of his 'Drake and Crowley' thriller series, and it's gone so well, that you can expect a second very shortly. In the show, we talk about what planning a series of books is like, after initially having a great idea for just the first. Also, we talk about how working as a radio producer has helped him talk to an audience, and how having a massive white-board and a few coloured post-it notes really helps the plotting.
Our Distinguished Diary features the weird and wonderful writing routine of Arthur Miller, one of the 20th century's greatest playwrights - and we'll find out the reckless manner that helped him pen 'A View from the Bridge', 'Death of a Salesman' and 'The Crucible'.
