S3E4 - Chatting With Jess Kidd

This episode I chat with author Jess Kidd about death, genre and being haunted by the past. Jess Kidd is the author of HIMSELF, THE HOARDER and most recently, THINGS IN JARS. We talk through her process for writing her novels, and what she's learned along the way. This is a great episode to listen to if you want to know: - how can I discover a character's voice? - how do I know what genre I'm writing in? - does genre matter?
