annethology Q&A's with debut novelists
SEE DROPDOWN LIST FOR INDIVIDUAL INTERVIEWS
What drives you as a writer and keeps you going when the going gets tough?
How did you get published?
How did you create such an intriguing character?
Join me as I put my questions to the authors of first novels that have impressed, moved, fascinated and entertained me.
First in the hot-seat was Alison Moore, author of the Booker-shortlisted The Lighthouse, in January 2013.
The most recent interview is with Jamie Mollart, author of The Zoo
Thanks to all who've taken part.
Always open to recommendations but invite only those authors whose novels I've really loved.
NOTE: after pursuing this venture for three years, this feature is on hold for the moment (as of January 2016) while I reflect on my website priorities.
To suggest questions or continue the discussion see here or my post on a novel approach to 6 degrees of separation. I'm also aiming to write reviews and posts on themes suggested by the individual novels – you'll find the links to these on the relevant author pages.
