Rob Hart, author of 'The Warehouse' - Critically acclaimed author talks dystopian fiction, standalone novels and editing backwards.
Rob Hart's new book 'The Warehouse' is in the mold of 'Farenheit 451' and '1984', and focuses on one big business that suffocates all others, and the stories of 3 people who work there. Because of this, his characterisation needs to be truly believable and authentic, we talk about this struggle and how he became his characters in writing.
It's also his first proper foray into standalone novels, having made his way with the 'Ash McKenna' series, and we talk about his relief at writing independent books, and how he finds it more enjoyable that staying with the same characters for many years. Not that this book was a quick write - he had the initial idea around a decade ago and it took many attempts to finally get it down on paper. We talk about that challenge and, in particular, that tricky first sentence.
