Dig Your Own Grave by Carmen Radtke / #Interview #BlogTour #InternationalWomensDayFestival @zooloosBT @CarmenRadtke1 @SpellBoundBks


Marie Ingram is kind, generous, and lately, a killer … When her childhood friend takes her own life to escape marital hell, Marie is devastated. But when the widower sets his eyes on a new wife, she knows what she has to do: Make sure no other woman suffers the same fate. Knowing she may not have long to live due to a serious illness, Marie considers this her parting gift to the world. But doing good by breaking bad is a very easy habit to fall into, and there are plenty more evil people who seem to be untouchable by the law. The question is, is Marie fast becoming irredeemable herself?




When and where do you prefer to write?

I would prefer late mornings and early afternoon, sat on a spacious desk in a room with a view, where only the purr of the cat punctuates my silence. In reality it’s in a cramped corner, whenever I can fit it in with paid work, family, and pets.

Do you need peace and quiet when you are writing?

Preferably, yes. Alas, that doesn’t happen unless I lock myself in.

If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?

If I could revive them, Agatha Christie or Joan Hess. If a heartbeat is a requirement, Robert Thorogood.

Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?

I’d like to be the unforgettable one!

Who would you like/have liked to interview?

Terry Pratchett.

Where can I find you when you are reading?

On my sofa or in my bed.

Where can I find you wen you are not writing/reading?

In the cinema or theatre, at my tap dance class, or by the ocean.

What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?

Sheer utter joy.

How do you come up with a title for your book?

Usually I have them before I start writing, because they encapsulate the idea. Dig Your Own Grave was an exception, but then it also was my first contemporary crime novel.

How do you pick a cover for your book?

I don’t, really. SpellBound sent me two fabulous design ideas and asked me for input. With my other novels, I trust my cover designers to come up with something wonderful. And they do, in my opinion. They really do.

Thank you, Carmen Radtke and Zooloo’s Book Tours


About the author

Carmen Radtke has spent most of her life with ink on her fingers and a dangerously high pile of books and newspapers by her side.

She has worked as a newspaper reporter on two continents and always dreamt of becoming a novelist and screenwriter.

When she found herself crouched under her dining table, typing away on a novel between two earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand, she realised she was hooked for life.

When Carmen is not writing cozy mysteries, reading or dreaming of travel, she is busy acting as resident cat servant or tap-dancing (badly, but enthusiastic).

She is currently working on her next Jack and Frances mystery.
