As the world of publishing continues to evolve, writers Jeanette Hewitt, Susi Holliday and Jane Isaac join Andrew Whittaker to talk about their writing, their inspirations and their personal publishing journeys.
Jeanette’s favourite genre is Historical fiction and she likes to combine actual events and real people in her writing. She has written two novels: Freedom First and Worlds Apart. Susi started off writing short stories before moving on to a psychological thriller novel, Black Wood (March 2015). Susi likes to use the “what if…” scenario to guide her writing. Jane writes crime fiction, and is fascinated by ordinary lives touched by extraordinary events. She has written three novels: An Unfamiliar Murder, The Truth Will Out and the most recent, Before It’s Too Late (June 2015). Andrew is a magazine and book editor, and author of two non-fiction books, Second-hand and Vintage London and Speak the Culture: France.
These writers are all published by independent presses, and Andrew will moderate a lively and varied panel on how they landed their first contract, the highs and lows of working with an indie house, and the inspirations for their work. So, if you are a new or aspiring writer looking to clinch that all-important book deal, or interested in novels that focus on real people and some of the darker elements of the human psyche, then this is the event for you.
