WMHT Local Writers Interview

WMHT and the Greenwich Free Library are hosting events around the Great American Read. They’re also highlighting local authors — like me! Check it out on their Facebook page: Read the rest here. What’s your Great American Read? I wanted to say Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, but it’s not on their list. But…

Interview: Madonna of the Wasps

For those not on the ‘book, you can still see my interview with Chris Roy at Scream Hard Reviews here. I may be giving too much away with that picture of the outline of Madonna of the Wasps in my notebook, but I trust my handwriting is so bad that it’s pretty much indecipherable. 😉 (Also…

Radio Radio

Listen to me have a natter with Hannah Kate on Hannah’s Bookshelf. It’s a free ranging discussion that takes in my many writing hats from academic to crime and historicals as well as the weird fiction that comes out under my own name. At the end I choose the three books I’d like to have…

On the Radio with Hannah Kate

How is it possible that I was interviewed on Manchester radio and never once mentioned The Fall?! Not sure, but I had a great time talking with Hannah Kate, whom you might know from Hic Dragones as well as her radio interviews. Last week she had Ramsey Campbell on, so be sure to check out…

New Interview and forthcoming Clues

I had a delightful interview with Dave Probert at Tangential Deviation. The conceit of the series is that you begin wherever the last interviewee stopped, so we began with light sabers and ping-ponged through a variety of subjects in the very tangential way that comes to me perfectly naturally (attention span of an otter: check!). I…

Dames, Dolls & Defiance

A couple of dames talking: yeah, that’s me and the Queen of Everything AKA S. L. Johnson talking about art, inspiration and why restrictions are good for creativity on SpeakEasy Radio. If you missed Friday’s programme, it was a short one with humour (the cardinal rule, keep it short) with Graham Wynd‘s ‘Ham on Heels’…

Anne Billson Interview

Over at A Knife & A Quill, I get to interview the faboo Anne Billson. Drop by if you have any interest in films, horror, ghosts, vampires, cats or Belgian beer. Or if you just like to read interviews with smart, witty women. Don’t forget — we still need to record the history of women…

Pulpy Pulchritude!

How about that? That’s the wraparound cover by Sarah Anne Langton for the Fox Spirit print edition of Extricate which will be joined by another novella Throw the Bones, plus a dozen short stories of various lengths and vintages. Yes, more titles inspired by The Fall. You can bet I will be posting the news…

Button Box and More

I am pleased as the proverbial punch to be part of this collection. Here’s the word on the recording: “Button Box” is a collection of 46 mixes constructed from elements taken from the Linear Obsessional album “Air Buttons” by Richard Sanderson (LOR046) “After releasing my album of melodeon and electronics improvisations, I decided to ask…
