Lucy Foley has just released her second mystery thriller. It’s called ‘The Guest List’, and is set at a dream wedding, on a remote island, where someone gets killed and everyone has a motive. We talk about the fundamentals you need to include in writing whodunnits, and how to flip the tradition on its head.
It comes after the huge success of her first whodunnit, ‘The Hunting Party’. It was also set on an island, and we chat about where she got that idea from, why she likes the idea of locking her characters away, and how she brought such stunning scenery to life using just her words.
Lucy’s writing day is fairly chaotic and decadent, working furiously in the morning before popping to the cinema in the afternoon. It works for her, and she’s fantastic at describing it.
