Interview with Susan Allott (Book Club Ep. 1)
Updated: Jan 12
She decided to trade the jaw-dropping landscapes of Australia to the grey views of a rainy Heathrow airport after failing to love the country her friends couldn't get enough of. It was only as the plane touched the ground that she realised the had made a mistake.
Her secret dream, to become an author, may not have been actualised so well if this hadn't happened. And if it weren't for the encouragement of the Australian man she wanted to marry, she might of just given up. After writing a novel based in this country, her dislike of it slowly evaporated, leaving only a deep longing to go back.
Her debut novel has now been published. It was selected as "one of five new thrillers and mysteries to offer welcome distraction" by The Washington Post, "one of 5 psychological thrillers you should read this May" by CrimeReads, and has been reviewed by some of the most impressive names.
This is Book Club Episode 1 with Susan Allott.
