Phoebe Morgan - Writer's Routine #5

Publishing editor and now published author Phoebe Morgan explores her writing routine!

After years of working as an editor in a publishing house, making other writer's work better, Phoebe sat down to tell her own story.

Her debut novel, 'The Doll House' is a psychological thriller about 2 sisters who, after just losing their much-loved father, find their life disturbed and intruded upon by someone seeking revenge. It's inspired by a doll house she used to played with, and the story has been bubbling away since childhood.

Phoebe chats about how her agent helped the book take shape, if working for a publisher and looking at books everyday affected her story, and what her ultimate aim is as an author.

Literary legend and the funniest writer EVER P.G Wodehouse is the subject of our Distinguished Diaries this week (and for those who like to imagine him as a languid lover of cocktails and all things British, it doesn't disappoint) so we'll get his writing routine too.

Musically, we've got as far as Dijon this week. So, expect a feast of scatty, French-coffee-shop jazz, and mustard with weird seedy things in it.

You know that thing you can do where you review the show on iTunes and give it 5 stars and tell all your mates to do the same? DO IT NOW
