Sabine Durrant, author of 'Finders, Keepers' - Psychological thriller writer talks about pre-work rituals, when writing gets tough, and planning the day.
Sabine Durrant has just published a brand new psychological thriller, it's called 'Finders, Keepers' and it tells the story of Verity who becomes obsessed with her new neighbour. You can find out how the story was inspired by a mission Sabine and her kids undertook to rescue a lost rabbit.
We talk about the convention of genre and how much Sabine plays with it, how much she needs to know before she starts a story, and how her routine has changed over time. As this show is a show about process, there's a lot about that, there's also a lot about the pre-process-process, and what Sabine needs to do before she even starts writing.
Sabine is a journalist and the author of the best-selling 'Having It and Eating It' and the 'Connie Pickles' series of children's books.Her four psychological thrillers so far have been sold all around the world, made it to the 'Richard and Judy Book Club' and been translated into many languages. She has also written for the Guardian, Observer, Sunday Times and Sunday Telegraph.
