Crime-writing behemoth Karin Slaughter is here with our first ever writer's routine!
With over 35 million copies of 17 books sold, in over 36 languages, Karin is one of the world's most popular thriller writers.
Her new novel, 'The Good Daughter', focuses on a woman's attempt to come to terms with a traumatising childhood, and explores what being a defence lawyer is like in small-town America.
Although the subject of the book is pretty harrowing, the interview is mainly about over-used words, Willy Wonka and how she gets her work done.
Also, the first of our Distinguished Diaries feature sees us look at how Founding Father Benjamin Franklin got his work done.
PLUS, there's some music on in the background that will hopefully transport you to a back-street French cafe, where you mumble out something that sounds like, 'Croque Monsieur, s'il vous plait', but you'll get served 2 packets of crisps and a glass of apple juice.
