We were lucky enough to get up close and personal with Neil White, the author of the chilling Cold Kill. If there are any questions we haven’t thought of then get in touch and let us know what you want to know about Neil!
1. If you were stranded on a desert island, which book would you take with you?
Although To Kill A Mockingbird first came to mind, because it is the only book I have wanted to start reading again as soon as I’d finished it, I would choose Shoeless Joe by WP Kinsella. It’s a whimsical tale of unfulfilled dreams set in Iowa, although the film adaptation is probably better known, Field of Dreams starring Kevin Costner.
2. Where does your inspiration come from?
If you mean my inspiration to write, it comes from other great books. When I read a really good book, I just think that I would love to write a book as good as that. If you mean for my plots, it just comes from real life. It’s a real tragedy that there are so many people willing to do horrific things to other human beings, but I am intrigued by their motivations, their thought processes, and how they can live with their guilt.
