Question from Sarah J Waters:
Do you ever take inspiration for plots from actual real life crimes?
I'm a former journalist, so I try to read several newspapers and blogs every day. I said it when I was a reporter, and I'll say it now as the writer of a fictional drama: You cannot make up the sh*t people do. Real life crimes never cease to amaze me.
