This week's guest on Novel Experience is journalist and Sunday Times Bestselling author Clover Stroud. Clover is my first guest writer whose published books are non-fiction, or 'life-writing'. We have such a great chat: covering ground from why life-writing is storytelling, curiosity about how people live their lives, the novels that she wrote before turning to memoir and finding right space and time to write. We also talk about what she is working on now, and we discuss her three books, The Wild Other - which is about her travels and the catastrophic accident of her mothers that changed her family life, My Wild and Sleepless Nights - which is about motherhood in all its guises and her most recent book, The Red of My Blood - which is about death and life following the death of her beloved sister Nell. The Red of My Blood is currently out in hardback and due to be published in paperback this week!
