Great interview with two great writers – what do you think of an amateur sleuth taking on the job of investigator?
Earlier this week I interviewed crime writer Janet O’Kane for the bite-sized interview pieces I am doing on my YouTube channel. The point of the bite-sized interviews are to only spend ten minutes (this one goes slightly over at eleven minutes) with any author and to discuss one specific topic. You can sign up to the channel Here.
With Janet, we discussed whether a crime novel can function without a detective as a protagonist. Janet’s protagonist is a GP. So we discussed where she came up with the idea, the level of scope her GP, Zoe Moreland has and how this works within the crime genre. You can find Janet on Twitter and Amazon. I hope you enjoy the interview.
What are your thoughts on crime novels with protagonists that aren’t in the law enforcement agencies? Can they work?
