Thorne Moore has been guest on my Welsh Wednesday series. I finally caugth up with her book this week.
Her book Motherlove is a brilliant story about a girl who went missing. The mother, who is being blamed for this, tries to figure out what happened. At the same time, other narrative strands focus on different themes of motherhood and motherlove.
While you know that the strands are connected somehow and even may be able to figure out how, you won’t be quite prepared for the way that the characters develop and come to terms with their issues. One of the biggest achievements for a book is to change your perspective and I certainly went away from this with exactly such a change of perspective.

Today I would like to welcome John Nicholl to Welsh Wednesdays. He writes psychological thrillers with a character called DI Gravel who is Welsh, overweight, heavy drinking, old school, world weary, and dedicated.
I was born and grew up in Carmarthen in beautiful wet West Wales. We lived in Devon and Cornwall for a while, but came back to Wales when I was appointed Child protection coordinator for Dyfed. We plan to stay in Wales.
Tell us a little about yourself as writer and as person. (Tell us about your writing history. When was the first time you decided to write and when was the first time you did? Your hobbies, family, pets..?)

As ever I was humbled by the enthusiasm of colleagues from…
