Sue Lawrence & Angela Meyer

Whipping up historical storms

Masterchef winner Sue Lawrence is known for her cookery writing but is also an established writer of historical thrillers. Lawrence discusses Down to the Sea, a tense affair switching between modern-day and 1890s Edinburgh. Melbourne-based Angela Meyer’s debut A Superior Spectre also zips back and forth in time, and 1860s Edinburgh provides a dark setting. Hear how the city’s past sparked these authors' imaginations, as they talk to Jenny Brown.
