Interview With Robin Storey
So how is An Affair With Danger different from your previous books?
I've had fans remark that this book is a departure of genre from my previous books, which were comedies. And yes, this is true, but it's not a complete departure.
Two of my previous books, while being comedies, also contain elements of crime and suspense.
My novel How Not To Commit Murder is about a conman trying to go straight and two of the stories in my short story anthology Comedy Shorts are about crime and criminals.
It's not a comedy, for a start, although there are a couple of scenes that verge on the humorous. It's a classic noir novel about two characters, one of whom has grown up in an environment of disadvantage and crime.
Their relationship spells nothing but trouble, but they dive into it anyway.
The novella highlights the dark side of love and romance, unlike my novel Perfect Sex, which is a light-hearted romp in the world of middle-aged dating.
What is it about noir novels that you like?
I like the realism of it, and the challenge of writing characters who are damaged and flawed, but still evoke empathy in the reader.
I've always veered towards noir in the books I read, and I've come to realize it's what I enjoy writing most as well.
Watch this space - there are plenty more noir novels in the pipeline.
