The Bloody Scots - Part 4
Name: Ray Banks
Writer, Day Job Drone
Last Known Location:
Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England (but he was born in Scotland...swear!)
Listen in as Ray talks about his Cal Innes P.I. series (Saturday's Child, Donkey Punch, No More Heroes
, etc.), what kinds of characters he likes and the challenges of writing a P.I. novel set in the U.K. He also reveals his leading picks for "Saturday's Child: On Ice," the P.I. cliche that needs to be retired, and explains how he'd manage the caber toss
with his giant coconuts.
*Lovely (and evidently rare) photo of smiley Ray by Mary Regan.
