Rosie Andrews – Why your writing day should be flexible

Rosie Andrews’ debut novel, ‘The Leviathan’ was first published last year to much acclaim. It has just come out in paperback. It tells the story of Thomas Treadwater, a soldier who holds a very deep, dark secret that is about to be let loose. It’s set in 1643, and is a beguiling tale of murder, myth and mystery. It combines two of Rosie’s loves: history and fantastical fiction.

We talk about building her own writing space, but how really all she needs to work is alone time and quiet. You can hear how her process is constantly evolving – she’s aware of where she’s come from, and where she needs to be. You can hear how the only inspiration she needs is to get out of the house, and how he writing routine needs to be flexible but she has little trouble getting the words out when she needs to.
