For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to Young Adult author Ross Sayers about his latest novel Daisy on the Outer Line, as well as his previous work Mary’s the Name and Sonny and Me (all published by the YA publisher Cranachan).
Ross is one of our favourite writers, and there are none better writing in the field of YA fiction today. It’s a fascinating conversation about finding the voice, language, getting “into character”, being defensive of those characters, the challenges with a time travel plot, and a whole lot more.
