TUESDAY TALK DROPS IN FOR A CHAT WITH CRIME WRITER SHEILA QUIGLEY

SQ 4Good morning Sheila and welcome. Can I begin the interview by asking you a little about yourself?

And good morning to you too Jo. I live in the North East of England in a small town called Houghton Le Spring, surrounded by family. George the mad hound, a collie retriever cross, who thinks he is the boss.

Have you always wanted to be a writer? How did your journey begin?

Actually my first dream was to be a mountain climber that soon died, as where I lived a small pit village in the fantastic North East, there were no mountains, not even a climbing range. Then I wanted to fly space ships, this was during my si fi stage. Sadly I found out later that I was too frightened to even get on an aeroplane never mind a space ship. The main problem being is that they won’t let me fly the damn things.

Can you tell us something about your latest project?

I am working on another Seahills novel, set in my home town. KILLING ME SOFTLY. Due out at the end of the year, cant say much about it as anything could change at this stage.

If you weren’t a crime writer, is there any other type of fiction you would like to write?

Probably horror. I am a huge Stephen King fan, the man is the best.

What one piece of advice would you give anyone starting out on their writing career

Get Stephen King’s  ON WRITING,  it is the best how to you will ever read. Never trust anyone on line who has never even written a book, and sets themselves up as an expert. When sending something off to a publisher, check that they actually publish your sort of work. The writers and artists year book is a great source of information for this sort of thing.

You’re planning to get away from it all to a deserted island.  What four things would you take with you?

Stephen King’s, The Stand. My mad hound for company, plenty of Chocolate, especially Kit Kats, and Diet Coke plus plenty of pens and paper.
