“The characters come to life in my head and I let them lead the way.”

CRIME AUTHORS SPILL THEIR GUTS ABOUT WRITING. Every Thursday topnotch authors of psychological thrillers and crime fiction share their writing secrets – and the secrets to their success – with you and me.

This week: BETSY REAVLEY 

Tell us about yourself…615x+H8kI0L._UX250_

I am a mother and wife. I live in Cambridge. My family mean the world to me and my husband is my rock. I have two beautiful and naughty daughters who keep me on my toes, as well as a bouncy puppy and a few quail. Not fogetting the pet frog, Frank.

I swear too much and drink too much. I don’t always think before I speak. I love books, music, films and food. I really want a parrot but my husband doesn’t like birds. I want to travel more.

I’ve written ever since I was tiny and it’s my happy place.
