Writing crime brings together elements such as in-depth research, intriguing characters and a plot with enough twists and turns to keep the savvy crime reader engaged – and guessing.
This course will help you plan, start and/or refine your crime novel and will cover some of the basics of good writing as they apply to the genre, including character development, plot development, dialogue and stream-of-consciousness writing.
PD Martin is the author of five crime fiction novels published 'traditionally' in 13 countries. Her Sophie Anderson series – Body Count, The Murderers’ Club, Fan Mail, The Killing Hands and Kiss of Death – has met with international acclaim.
Phillipa has also recently moved into the digital world. Her ebooks include: Coming Home, The Wanderer, Grounded Spirits and her latest novel, Hell’s Fury, is a spy thriller with crime at its heart.
