I’ve just finished watching the latest series of Vera on Britbox. I LOVE Vera! I’m working through the books now. Recently started following Brenda Blethyn and Ann Cleeves on Twitter. Ann mentioned an interview on Desert Island Discs and I listened and discovered her husband was diagnosed Bi-Polar in mid-life! He had dealt with depression all his life. He was in psychiatric hospital several times before he was accurately diagnosed. I, of course, found this very interesting! She talks about laying next to a husband she felt like she didn’t even know. I can definitely relate to that! Here are a couple radio interviews with her…
Bello has brought back her older series from the 1990’s, the Inspector Ramsay books! I’m looking forward to getting my hands on them! They are based in Northumberland also. There are six of them.
She is also writing the first book in a new series, Twin Rivers series featuring Matthew Venn. It’s set in Devon.
The interview on Australian radio is lengthy but so good!
