1) So, who are you & what have you written?
I am Lisa Hall, and I’ve written two psychological thrillers – Between You and Me which came out in March 2016, and Tell Me No Lies, which was released in October 2016. You can find my books on Amazon HERE and HERE. And you can find me at http://www.lisahallauthor.co.uk and on Twitter as @LisaHallAuthor.
2) Why do you write crime fiction?
It’s what I love! I didn’t set out to write this genre, I seemed to naturally fall into it.
3) What informs your crime writing?
Everything starts with a “what if?…” I usually find a news story or article will spark my interest and a “what if?’ usually follows …
4) What’s your usual writing routine?
Drop the kids at school, make a large mug of tea and aim to bash out around 2000 words a day. It doesn’t always work out that way, and I find I can only work in short bursts before I need to either make more tea or mooch around on Twitter for a bit. I’m a plotter, but although I have an idea of the whole storyline at the beginning, I can only plan around three chapters out at a time.
5) Which crime book do you wish YOU’D written, and why?
I wish I’d written Tall Oaks by Chris Whitaker, as the characterisation is incredible. I also recently read The Roanake Girls which was a stunning book.
