Video interview with Neil Cross

One of the things I'm trying to do with this blog is to build something of a resource, or conduit, through which people interested in New Zealand crime and thriller fiction, can find their way to disparate resources relating to Kiwi writers, that are otherwise spread throughout the Internet etc. So rather than being just about my thoughts on crime writing (particularly NZ crime writing), one major goal of this blog is to (somewhat) bring some of those things together, to make it easier for people to learn more about Kiwi crime writers. Hence the encylopaedia style posts on recent writers, links to rather-unknown, historic or forgotten authors, and links to Radio NZ interviews etc on the sidebar.

In keeping with that, I stumbled across a recent-ish video interview with British/Kiwi crime writer Neil Cross. Cross, who has been Booker longlisted for his 'literary thriller' ALWAYS THE SUN, and also was the lead writer on the award-winning BBC TV series Spooks (and is currently working on Luther, a new TV crime series) immigrated to New Zealand several years ago, and now lives in Wellington. I was fortunate enough to interview Neil Cross earlier this year for a feature article in Good Reading magazine.

You can watch the video interview here (thanks YouTube!), where Cross talks about some of his recent books, and writing for TV and novels.
