On this week’s episode, we hear from Sarah J Harris, who’s the author of The Color of Bee Larkham’s Murder, as well as YA novels under a different name.  She discusses the particular loneliness of synaesthesia, her love for the martial arts, the long path to publication, and more.

(A note on my book links: they usually take you to Amazon, and I get a few pence per sale at no extra cost to you if you click them and buy from there, which will help me make this podcast viable long-term. But better than Amazon, who are, let’s be honest, not the greatest, is Blackwells or Waterstones, or, even better, your local independent bookshop. If you live in the US or elsewhere further afield, you can find UK books at Book Depository (also owned by Amazon) at a good price and with no postage cost, or sometimes at Wordery.com, or you can buy them from Amazon US, or, even better, an independent bookshop.)
