Peter May is a Scottish television screenwriter, novelist, crime writer, and recipient of writing awards in Europe and America.
Bestselling author Peter May speaks to presenters Paul Waters & Stevyn Colgan over 3 parts in this edition of We’d Like A Word. It’s an experiment to see if it’s easier for you to listen to 3 separate parts around 20 mins, rather than a single hour long podcast. Please let us know if it’s easier/harder/no different/gecko. Peter May is the author of many award-winning thrillers, including the Lewis trilogy & his China series. He’s also been a journalist and written oodles of TV scripts. He’s sold millions of books and lives between southern France and Spain. We are NOT jealous! He’s been hired as a private detective by two giant geckos. No, really. Listen & learn! And he ran away with a band in his teens. In this podcast he talks about creating a sense of place in A Silent Death set in Spain & Gibraltar, weaving in humour & also about a character who has Usher Syndrome - ie is deaf/blind. (By the way, you can find out more about Usher Syndrome at the Sense charity website www.sense.org.uk ) We'd Like A Word is a podcast and radio show from Paul Waters and  Stevyn Colgan. We talk with writers, readers, celebrities, talkers,  poets about books, songs, lyrics, speeches,  scripts, fiction and  non-fiction. We go out on various radio platforms at least once a fortnight and every other Thursday on podcast. Our website is www.wedlikeaword.com -  which is where you'll find information about Paul and Steve and our  guests - and details of the radio stations that carry We'd Like A Word.  We're also on Twitter @wedlikeaword and Facebook @wedlikeaword and our email is wedlikeaword@gmail.com - and yes,  we are slightly embarrassed by the missing apostrophes. We like to hear  from you - your thoughts,  ideas, guest or book suggestions. Perhaps you'd like to come on We'd Like A Word in person, to chat, review, meet writers or read out passages from books. . .
