Candice Fox

Writer's Book Club Podcast

I first met Candice at a writer's festival in 2019 and was struck by how generous she was with her experiences as a writer which, of course, is exactly the kind of writer I want to bring to your ears on this podcast. Candice is knowledgeable on the craft of writing, yes, but she also has the best stories. We chatted more about the craft behind her writing but after this, go and have a listen to some of the stories of her very unusual childhood and her experiences, as a writer, interviewing serial killers. If you go to the About page on her website candicefox.org and scroll to the bottom, you'll find a link to her conversation with Richard Fidler which is absolutely fascinating.In this interview, Candice took me behind the scenes of The Chase. We talked about her drafting and editing processes, how she pitched the idea to her publisher, how she structured the novel with an A and B plot and multiple vignettes, the techniques she uses to make the reader care about the characters, how she goes about creating and maintaining tension, and so much moreThis is another hour-long interview. I think we just need to accept that this podcast has hour-long episodes and I'm okay with that. Hope you are too. That's the beauty of podcasts isn't it - you can break it up if you like or just binge the whole thing on a really long walk.Remember there can be spoilers in this podcast, although we don't reveal any of the big ones in this episode, but if you hate knowing anything about a book before you've read it, you can buy a copy of The Chase in all the usual places.ABOUT CANDICE FOXCandice Fox’s first novel, Hades, won the Ned Kelly Award for best debut in 2014 from the Australian Crime Writers Association. The sequel, Eden, won the Ned Kelly Award for best crime novel in 2015, making Candice only the second author to win these accolades back to back. Her subsequent novels – Fall, Crimson Lake, Redemption Point and Gone by Midnight – were all shortlisted for the Ned Kelly Award. In 2015 Candice began collaborating with James Patterson. Their first novel together, Never Never, set in the Australian outback, was a huge bestseller in Australia and went straight to number one on the New York Times bestseller list in the US, and also to the top of the charts in the UK. Their later novels – Fifty Fifty, Liar Liar, Hush Hush and The Inn – have all been massive bestsellers across the world. Not bad for a chick from Bankstown, where Candice was born and bred. To top it all off, Candice has two undergraduate and two postgraduate degrees.In other words she's the perfect person to teach us one or two things about writing.Website - https://www.candicefox.org/Follow Candice on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.Shownotes are available at https://www.writersbookclubpodcast.com

105. Fearlessly Failing: Best Selling Crime Fiction Author - Candice Fox

Fearlessly Failing with Lola Berry

The second I opened an email from Candice’s publicist asking if she could jump on the pod to promote her new book “The Chase” I knew I had to talk to this human. Not only is Candice a best selling crime fiction author (who’s currently working on her 16th book mind you) but she’s sat in a bulletproof shark tank cell with one of the most notorious serial killers in the world. As she sat opposite this killer for 5 hours the whole time they had a sniper on him incase he lunged at her. Candice has put herself in some really fascinating but also scary scenarios, in her research for this book The Chase (which I binge read in 3 days) she visited Lithgow maximum security prison just out of Sydney and talks about seeing inmates pacing and they’d punched the governor in the face just the day before Candice’s visit. If you’re even a tiny bit intrigued true crime,Ted Bundy, the Co-Ed killer, we deep dive some of these guys. And can I just say The Chase, Candice’s new book is unreal, I’ve never read crime fiction until this book and I’m absolutely hooked, thank you Candice, you’re a wonderful human! Learn more about Candice here:https://www.candicefox.org/aboutBut her new book The Chase here:https://www.penguin.com.au/books/the-chase-9781760896799Big love,Lola Follow Lola Berry on Instagram: @yummololaberrywww.lolaberry.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
