Jennie Fields – Spy drama writer talks about bending the genre

Jennie Fields’ 5th novel is ‘Atomic Love’, it’s a twisting spy drama with a side of romance set in 1950’s Chicago. It tells the story of Rosalind, a worker on the Manhattan Project, who is recruited to the CIA. We chat about how she brought such an evocative era to life, bending the rules of the spy genre. You can hear how the idea came from her family history, and things she discovered about her mum and the Manhattan Project.

We talk about the luxurious writing room she has, why she gets started late in the day, and how much she knows about a novel before she gets to work on it.
