Yes, it’s the Epilogue, our bonus inbetween episodes, little quick listens containing an extra question or topic not covered in the original interview. This week it’s the turn of Thriller writer, Kate Medina. If you missed it, you can find her full interview here or, even better, subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher or wherever else you get your podcasts to get a new episode downloaded automatically every week.
In today’s episode, I talk to Kate about creating strong female characters in her work and about her character creation process in general.
Before turning to writing full time, Kate spent five years in the Territorial Army. She also worked in publishing as Managing Editor, Land Based Weapon Systems, at Jane’s Information Group, where she was responsible for providing information on small arms, armour, artillery and land mines to global militaries.
She has an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University and her debut novel, White Crocodile, set in the land mine fields of Cambodia received widespread critical acclaim, as did Fire Damage and Scared to Death, the first and second books in the Dr Jessie Flynn, clinical psychologist, series.
Joined Up Writing is coming up to its three year anniversary so we now have a pretty big archive of interviews, two minute tips, epilogues and writing chats for you to enjoy and it’s all completely FREE! However, if you do want to show your appreciation or support the show, you can do that in a few different ways – all of which will cost you nothing. Firstly, you could take advantage of the free 30 day Audible trial and go to AudibleTrial.com/joinedup Try it for free using that link and as an official affiliate, the show receives a few pence for each of you that try it out.
Alternatively, you could take thirty seconds to leave a quick iTunes rating and review as that helps other people to find the show and means I can continue to attract brilliant guests and improve the content of the show.
And if doing either of those things is just too strenuous, that’s still ok – I really appreciate you listening – but maybe you could just share the show on social media or even just tell someone, face to face over a coffee? I want to continue to build and improve the show into 2018 and I can only do that with your help.
Have you subscribed on iTunes yet? Or left a review? It takes seconds and will really help us to keep improving the show.
