RNZ interview Paddy Richardson

As I foreshadowed last week, Dunedin-based thriller writer Paddy Richardson was interviewed on Radio New Zealand's Arts on Sunday show with Lynn Freeman over the weekend, as part of the regular "Chapter and Verse" segment.

You can listen to a reading from Richardson's newly released thriller, HUNTING BLIND, and the interesting interview HERE (about 8 minutes total). You will need to fast-forward through to 7:05mins of the segment (which starts with a 7-minute interview with the organiser of an upcoming literary festival).

Richardson talks about a number of topics, including the theme and writing of HUNTING BLIND, creating characters, and more. At the very end she talks about the novel she is currently working on, which sounds like another thriller. So it's great to see New Zealand authors looking to put out multiple and regular crime and thriller titles now (as opposed to the many authors over the past couple of decades who just released one or two, then stopped).
