Writing To Reach You: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Catriona Child...

For the latest SWH! podcast Ali caught up with previous guest, the writer Catriona Child, to talk about her latest novel Fade Into You which is published by Luath Press.

The two talk about the writing of the book, the inspirations behind it, the setting of the 1990s, creating a soundtrack, how music can have a profound effect in the formative years, the importance to being true to the past, and whole lot more.

They also discuss the teenage years and how keenly everything is felt at that time, and the transition from those years into some kind of adulthood.

It was lovely to catch up with Catriona, 10 years after she was last on the pod, and talk about what already feels like one of the best books of 2023.

Here's the Spotify playlist Catriona mentioned in the podcast which works as the soundtrack to Fade Into You:
