In a small white building in the midst of the Hertfordshire, England, countryside, best-selling author Freya North works studiously day after day, bringing life to her caravan of characters. Now with 14 novels to her name, North doesn’t think of herself as creating the characters, but acting as an antennae through which fully formed stories flow. Listen in as we talk about North’s creative process, the agony of writer’s block, and the first book that ignited her love of reading.
