Thanks very much to Stephen E. Andrews for this youtube interview for his Outlaw Bookseller podcast, providing an overview of all my books. Steve is based in Bath, in Somerset, and his extraordinarly encyclopaedic knowledge of books is matched by his infectious enthusiasm. I first met him when he invited me to give a talk in Bath’s Waterstones.

Hard to categorize
I was asked by this website (shepherd.com) to pick a category of book, and then list five favourites in that category. I picked the category ‘hard to categorize’. My list is here.
The first four books I’ve been aware of for a long time (since my teens in a couple of cases). The Molly Keane I only came across recently.
Interview with Alternative Stories
Interview here with Chris Gregory, at Alternative Stories, interspersed with readings by actors from my books (Including preview of my next novel, Tomorrow.)
Tiny Bookcase interview
The unusual format of this podcast is that I and the two interviewers (Ben and Nick) had each written a mini-story with the same title (‘I’m alone’) and we began by reading these.
Interview with Sam Ruddock
Here’s me talking to Sam Ruddock, on behalf of National Centre for Writing, about dialogue among other things. Many thanks to Sam and to NCW for having me.
‘Writers on lockdown’ (interview)
Interview here with fellow-writer and aficionado of dreams, Caroline Dudley.
Podcast discussions of Dark Eden (and an interview)
Spectology have recorded not one but two very detailed discussions of Dark Eden. The ‘pre-read’ discussion is here. The ‘post-read’ discussion (i.e. the one in which spoilers are allowed) is here. They like the book a lot, which I’m obviously delighted about.
Following these two podcasts, Adrian from Spectology did an additional podcast in the form of an interview with me, which you can find here.
New interview with GJ Stevens
New interview here with Gareth Stevens. Includes my tips for would-be writers.
Interview with Robin Shantz
New podcast interview here with Robin Shantz aka Bloginhood.
Interview in Cambridge Independent (and me leaning on a tree)
Here’s a write up in the Cambridge Independent (one of my local papers), of an interview with me.
