Series 3

Episode One - Author Caroline O'Donoghue

'I wanted it to look like how it feels like, and how it feels to be Irish sometimes is that you are in a murder mystery.'

Caroline O'Donoghue, host of Sentimental Garbage and author of Promising Young Women, Scenes of a Graphic Nature and the forthcoming YA novel All Our Hidden Gifts, tells Jess about playing with different genres, how some endings are too unbelievable to work, the inherent witchiness of being a girl, and how annoying it is for a movie to share your book's title. She also gives some stellar book recommendations for all those taking up this year's Audiobook Listening Challenge.
