Nell Pattison, author of 'The Silent House' - Psychological thriller writer talks about editorial feedback, mixing up the day, and being inspired by real life.
Nell Pattison's debut thriller is 'The Silent House', which tells the story of a crime happening in a full house, and no-one has a clue how. It stars Paige Northwood, as a British Sign Language interpreter called in to help the police. Nell herself is a BSL interpreter - they say write what you know - and we talk about how she had the initial story idea, why it took a while to brew in her mind, and how it's inspired by real life.
We also chat about the novels she's finished but never published, why a switch of genre helped that to finally happen and how getting editorial feedback was such a relief to her. Also, as Nell is a teacher we talk about how that affects the way she tells stories, and how she's learning to fix her niggles in earlier drafts.
