Hello and welcome to You Wrote The Book, a book based podcast hosted by Simon Savidge. Each fortnight over the coming months he will be joined by a special guest author to discuss their life as a writer and as a reader, from the current novel they have published to the first book they read and everything in between.
My guest for this episode is Sharon Bolton or as some of you may have known her S. J. Bolton. Sharon has recently won the Dagger in the Library Award, which celebrates the entire work of a crime author and what a back catalogue it is. Sharon is the author of seven books; three standalones Sacrifice, Blood Harvest and Awakening and the Lacey Flint series Now You See Me, Dead Scared, Like This, For Ever and A Dark and Twisted Tide plus the short story If Snow Hadn’t Fallen. Simon had the pleasure of talking to Sharon about the Lacey Flint series and more, without giving away any spoilers…
Over the next few episodes Simon will be joined by Neel Mukherjee and Tess Gerritsen. If you have any questions for the authors, would like to suggest authors you think Simon should be getting on the show, or simply want to have a natter about books, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on twitter @youwrotethebook.
