Sam Lloyd – Thriller author talks about the character that won’t go away

Sam Lloyd has written sci-fi and fantasy before, but when he got the idea for ‘The Memory Wood’ he knew it had to be a thriller. It tells the story of Elissa, who is kidnapped from school and locked away in the woods, and Elijah who finds her, but won’t tell a soul. It’s a blend of two ideas – one he had while killing time at his son’s school, the other was of Elijah… a character that wouldn’t go away, and whose story he had to tell.

We talk about how much he plans every day, why he has such a tight timeframe to work in, and how he’s trying to improve his productivity.
