Video: Rae Cairns on ‘The Good Mother’

Rae Cairns is a former youth worker who has turned to a life of crime… writing. She is fascinated with how ordinary people manage when faced with extraordinary circumstances, and the lengths everyday characters will go when all they love is put at risk. She writes crime with heart; thriller and suspense novels featuring everyman (and woman) characters.

Her debut novel, The Good Mother, draws on her background as a youth worker mentoring disadvantaged youth, many of them children of the paramilitaries, in Northern Ireland during the final years of ‘The Troubles’.

This interview is from the ‘So You Want To Be A Writer’ podcast by the Australian Writers’ Centre, where you’ll find world-class writing courses. You can learn online with your own tutor, and join a wonderfully supportive writing community.
