Part 1: Serena Patel, author of Anisha Accidental Detective tells presenters Paul Waters & Stevyn Colgan about writing for children. She also reads from her debut book & talks about her childhood experiences of being bullied, racism & homelessness. And the detective books she read as a child. And the inspirational British Asians she looked up to. And we also go behind the scenes of children’s book promotion with freelancer Fritha Lindqvist who helped Cressida Cowell train her dragon. Plus we visit the beautiful Daunts Bookshop on Marylebone High Street, London to meet bookseller Rose Cole & book lovers from the USA.
We'd Like A Word is a podcast and radio show from authors Paul Waters and Stevyn Colgan. We talk with writers, readers, celebrities, talkers, poets about books, songs, lyrics, speeches, scripts, fiction and non-fiction. We go out on various radio platforms at least once a fortnight and every other Thursday on podcast. Our website is www.wedlikeaword.com - which is where you'll find information about Paul and Steve and our guests - and details of the radio stations that carry We'd Like A Word. We're also on Twitter @wedlikeaword and Facebook @wedlikeaword and our email is firstname.lastname@example.org - and yes, we are slightly embarrassed by the missing apostrophes. We like to hear from you - your thoughts, ideas, guest or book suggestions. Perhaps you'd like to come on We'd Like A Word in person, to chat, review, meet writers or read out passages from books. . .
