CRIMINALLY GOOD: Interview with author Graham Smith

Graham Smith1) So, who are you & what have you written?

I’m Graham Smith and I have had a short story collection and a novel published they are The Major Crimes Team Vol 1: Lines of Enquiry and Snatched from Home.

Here I am ON FACEBOOK and you can follow me on Twitter as @GrahamSmith1972.

2) Why do you write crime fiction?

I write crime fiction because it’s all that interests me. I love the setting of a puzzle and the drama that accompanies the situations I create.

Snatched-From-Home3) What informs your crime writing?

I have no certified experience in any other field, but I have read crime fiction for thirty-five years and have a keen interest in the darker side of life.

4) What’s your usual writing routine?

I tend to write for a couple of hours a night once my son has gone to bed. Once I’ve got a project complete, I’ll let it sit for a few weeks and then read it through looking for all the big mistakes. After correcting them, I go Lines-of-Enquiry-Coverthrough the manuscript twice looking for grammatical errors and then I read the novel aloud and fix anything else I find wrong with it. Once this is done I feel it’s ready for submission.

5) Which crime book do you wish YOU’D written, and why?

I’d have to say The Da Vinci Code because hidden away in all that bad writing is a great story that needs told properly. (The fact it sold a gazillion copies and made Dan Brown very rich has absolutely nothing to do with my choice.)

Thanks, Graham!

    These days it is important to find sources for information that we trust. I look at you and other book bloggers for my recommendations. I just bought this book based on seeing it, and Mr. Smith on your page. Keep on.
