Nicola Gill – Debut author talks about creating a plot around the characters

Nicola Gill’s debut novel is ‘The Neighbours’. It tells the story of Ginny and Cassie, two unlikely friends who are thrown together when they both reach rock-bottom. It’s a funny story of friendship, love and adventure. We talk about how Nicola got that first idea, how she crafted her day to make sure she got it down properly, and why she got to work incredibly early to make that happen.

Also, we chat about what her day-job taught her about writing, in creativity and efficiency. We talk about genre and whether it’s important as a writer to think about who you’re writing for. Nicola talks about how much she thinks about the voice she writes in, and whether she could switch genre and keep her passion for story-telling.
