  2. Hi Madeleine and Robin - I loved crime mysteries growing up .. the ones you mention - Christie, Ngaio Marsh - who introduced us to New Zealand ... my uncle swore by Josephine Tay ... and then the others .. the Sherlocks etc - Maigret and the Third Man ... and I was off into Overseas thrillers.

    Clever Alex to ask about how many in the series ... as you say you could keep them coming - and why not ... keep that audience and build another series ..

    Well done Robin .. cheers and thanks Madeleine for your guest - Hilary

  4. I have just started reading Eva Ibbotson's The Secret of PLatform 13. A very easy and intriguing read. I think another well known author must also be a fan of her work. :O)

  6. I agree with Misha, the format of these posts is great. I've enjoyed the interviews with Robin very much. I was about 12 when I read my first Agatha Christie too xx

  9. I'm a big Agatha Christie fan too, but I must read some Josephine Tey. I've just been looking her up on Google, and she sounds fascinating!

  11. What an awesome post! I loved the format. I can't wait to read this series and I plan to start with the first one. I would love to write 1000 words a day! I am a slower writer and my day job gets in the way. ;) Wishing Robin the best of luck!

  13. I used to be a full time writer but recently returned back to work. It's so weird to go from having the time to procrastinate to that not being an option anymore. Congrats on your success!!!
