Jessica Payne – Psychological thriller author discusses switching genre for success

Jessica Payne had 3 failed attempts at getting published. It took a genre switch to finally get her book out there and on the shelves. Her debut is ‘Make Me Disappear’, about a woman so desperate to escape her sociopathic boyfriend, she’s prepared to go to extreme lengths to get away.

We talk about why she was so determined to get published, also how she balances a hectic work-life where her husband works 90 hour weeks, while she looks after her toddler and manages to write novels. You can hear how she got to know her characters, and how she keeps her creative time sacred.

Jessica also hosts the #MomsWritersClub on Twitter, with lots of excellent writing and publication advice.
