Pictures Or It Didn’t Happen

Good evening readers!

I have booked a Times Crime and Thriller Writing Masterclass on Monday of next week. One of the authors attending will be Sophie Hannah. I recently read and posted on her latest Poirot mystery, Closed Casket. In preparation for the masterclass I decided to familiarise myself with more of her books.

I have just finished reading her book ‘Pictures Or It Didn’t Happen’. I don’t want to give too much away but it is a great heartwarming ‘love conquers all’ tale.

I’m wondering how I should prepare for the crime writing class on Monday. Which questions should I ask. I would like to know more about how to structure a plot to create a feeling of suspense and mystery. I would also like to know about how the authors go about creating characters and deciding on the physical setting for the novel as well as the historical/social setting.

I am quickly becoming a huge fan of Sophie Hannah and can hardly wait to meet her on Monday.

I’d like your opinion on which questions I should ask.

I’ll let you know next week how I get on!

Bye for now.
