In The Chair 3: Nell Peters

Welcome, Nell Peters

How would you describe your writing style in only three words?

Nell: Quirky, humorous, succinct.

If you could have a relationship with one of your fictional characters who would it be and why?


Nell: Richard Ffinche in By Any Other Name, because he’s a great guy – and rich. You don’t meet many of those.

If you had to exist for a week in one of your books … which would it be? Would you be a central character or simply watch the story unfold from the sidelines?

Nell: By Any Other Name – because I know who the baddie is and I could save the day. I’d bound from peripheral character to heroine who gets her man.

Dead or alive literary dinner party: who would you invite, and what would you serve?

Nell: Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Rankin, PD James and Peter James. Pizza delivery – I’m a lousy cook.

 If you had to write in a different genre which would it be and why?


Nell: Romance – my crime novels always include a healthy (or in some cases unhealthy) dose, so I’d just have to wean myself off killing characters.

 What do you dislike the most about being  an author?

 Nell: My head is always full of bizarre stuff.

 Favourite word? Nell: Wine.

Nell Peters was in the chair: Author of ‘By Any Other Name.’ Published by Accent Press.
