In this episode I chat to novelist Claire North (aka Catherine Webb) about her amazing career spanning 20 (!) novels so far, starting when she was just 14. We chat about genre, growing up geeky, dystopias, craft, and changing the world - and her latest novel, 84K, set in a frighteningly familiar corporate near-future where everything - including murder - has a price and ad support. This is a great episode to listen to if you want to know: - does genre matter? - who decides what genre my book is? - can stories change the world? - what are some ways in to writing about big themes or social issues? - how can I write consistently? You can grab a copy of 84K by Claire North here: https://wordery.com/84k-claire-north-9780316316804#oid=1908_1 Here's THE FIRST FIFTEEN LIVES OF HARRY AUGUST, which we chat about: https://wordery.com/the-first-fifteen-lives-of-harry-august-claire-north-9780356502588#oid=1908_1 You can follow Cat on Twitter: @ClaireNorth42 Please support me and the show by buying my cool book, THE HONOURS: https://wordery.com/the-honours-tim-clare-9781782114765#oid=1908_1 You can also drop me a couple of bucks directly to help with the show's overheads, via my ko-fi page: ko-fi.com/timclare Thank you!
