Starfish and Coffee: Episode 17 • CJ Tudor • Author
Caroline Tudor - better known as CJ Tudor to her readers - is killing it.
From The Chalk Man across to her fifth novel, The Drift, she’s publishing quality work every time. Not just quality, but also different. I like the way she pushes herself to be a different version of herself each time a book comes out - it might not sound like much - maybe you’d expect it to be the case all the time with writers - but it’s not. I rate her highly and if you like thrillers that are dipped in er… something other-worldly, I think you will too.
In this feisty episode - which includes dogs barking from both sides of the mic (which is thoroughly encouraged) - we go from Enid Blyton to Stephen King in 60 seconds, talk about publishing, foreign book covers, getting your book picked up for TV… and then it actually happening, hard work, Star Trek, agents, Yellowjackets, what your parents think of you, what your kids think of you and well… it’s basically just a great, fun hour talking about books and writing.
When you’re done, go read some.
Footnote: The audio is a little off here and there - not so much as to spoil the show - but I apologise anyway. It wasn’t like that when we recorded it and appears to be on the Zoom master recording - so their days might be numbered if it happens again. I’ve cleaned it up but some of it I can’t get near even with decent software.
