Read more

Dr. Chris Hammer is a two-time Paralympian who competed in the 2012, London and 2016 Rio Games. He has a doctorate in sport psychology   and coaches the women’s triathlon team at Davis and Elkins College. In discussing his research on individuals with acquired disabilities, Chris describes the feelings of incompetence and lack control that traumatic injuries induce.   Using the analogy of reconstructing a house in the aftermath of a natural disaster, Chris suggests that individuals who grow following their injuries are those who reconstruct a “bigger, better and stronger house”. He talks about the importance of coping with pain, the motivational role of hope, and ensuring athletes have opportunities to experience successful performance accomplishment.  For further assistance dealing with the challenges of injury or for performance enhancement consulting visit: podlogconsulting.com

You’re already interested, right?
Earlier this year Chris followed up the phenomenal success of his debut Martin Scarsden novel with ‘Silver’ which picks up where ‘Scrublands’ left off in another page-turning read.
Join me as Chris and I chat about the phenomenal success of these novels, his inspiration, meeting Val McDermid and what he’s planning next in this highly entertaining and informative interview.

Chris Hammer, author of award-winning 'Scrublands' - Winner of 'New Blood Dagger Award' talks writing anywhere, nuanced characters and learning from journalism.

Read more

Before publishing his first novel, Chris Hammer worked as a journalist. Travelling all over the world reporting stories gave him the ability to write anywhere, and taught him how to tell stories. He used all that knowledge to write 'Scrublands', his debut about Martin Scarsden, a journalist who becomes embroiled in a tangle of crimes after a vicar does something extremely unreligious.

We talk to Chris about keeping track of plots, working to deadlines and making sure his characters are more than they seem. In January 2020, Chris will publish the follow-up 'Silver', in the UK, and we discuss how writing the first changed how he worked on the second, and how he comes up with new ideas for his protagonist.

We'll have Hugh Montgomery on the show in the next few weeks, do read this article - https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/aug/17/surgeon-ultrarunner-thriller-writer-hugh-montgomery-lives-life-to-the-full - before you listen to that chat!
