Abigail Mann – Funny writer talks about public accountability

Abigail Mann has just released her second novel, very quickly after publishing her first. ‘The Sister Surprise’ tells us the story of Ava who discovers she has an unknown sister, and decides to pay her a secret visit.


We talk about how she remembers how to write a book, when she between projects. We chat about public accountability with work, and how she’s managed that through lockdown. Also, you can hear why she switches between writing softwares and word processors between drafts to keep on her toes.


Abigail was shortlisted for the 2019 Comedy Women in Print Prize, and since sense of humour is so subjective, we discuss how she writes funny to an award standard.
