One of the perks of working at Curtis Brown Creative is getting to meet all the fabulous authors who come in with their literary agents to speak to students on our creative writing courses.

The bestselling novelist Tammy Cohen came in with her Curtis Brown agent Felicity Blunt to speak to students on one of our London novel-writing courses, and we took the opportunity to sit down with them both before the session and ask them some questions. Oh – and we filmed it all for you…

In this first video, Tammy and Felicity talk about how they came to work together on Tammy’s debut novel The Mistress’s Revenge.

And in this second video, Tammy discusses her new novel A Dangerous Crossing – a historical ‘locked room’ mystery, which has been published under the pseudonym Rachel Rhys.
