Bookish is dedicated to giving readers the best content around; that’s why we’re partnering with BookTrib to bring you this podcast interview:
In 2013, Sean Tuohy met Daniel Ford at a Halloween party and they immediately hit it off. The podcast wasn’t born on that exact night, but they were able to discuss some of their favorite things like writing, screenwriting, books, movies, comedy, and comic books. They put their heads together and came up with some of their favorite names, some of which included 2 Gentleman Writers and Hemingway’s Love Children, eventually settling on Writer’s Bone–and we are so glad that they did! Daniel and Sean feel that they are in the middle of something very big and wonderful, featuring new author interviews, fiction pieces, and Boneyard discussions along the way. BookTrib.com met Sean and Daniel recently and invited them to share Writer’s Bone with our readers.
In this week’s podcast, Bianca Marais, author of Hum if You Don’t Know the Words, talks to Daniel Ford about writing stories at a young age, how mystery and detective novels influence her work on a daily basis, and how her upbringing in Apartheid, South Africa inspired her debut novel. Marais moved from South Africa to Toronto in 2012 and started working on Hum if You Don’t Know the Words while doing her Creative Writing Certificate through the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies.
