In episode two of our second season, I speak with travel writer, journalist, novelist and YA author Emily Barr. We chat about starting new novels during lockdown, publishing a book about a pandemic during a pandemic, writing about scary things to become less scared, and about the happy accidents that led to Emily’s prolific and varied writing career. Emily’s playful attitude to writing is contagious and her stories are exciting as well as empathic. Her latest YA novel, Things to do Before the End of the World will be out soon and her first thriller We Hear Voices is now out in the US.
