You Vill Answer Ze Questions

Crime Always Pays, run by the multi-talented renaissance man (and no relation) Declan Burke focuses on Irish crime writing (which seems to be on quite a roll these days). Occasionally Dec will strap a writer into a chair, attach electrodes to sensitive parts, beat them with a rubber hose and shine bright lights in their eyes while subjecting them to an intimidating barrage of questions*.

Yours truly was recently lucky to escape with minor injuries from such an interrogation and the results can be seen here.

Thanks Dec, medical bills are in the post.

*Some of this may be untrue or slightly exaggerated.

"Most satisfying writing moment? Getting that phone call. No, not the one from the clinic, the other one; the one where someone says they’d like to publish you."

Man, you got that right! There's nothing like it. Congrats, Bob!

Nice use of interrogatives from Declan. Just a little more work needed on the props for an interrogation though.

Congrats, Bob.
