Tom Rob Smith and Mark Billingham talk crime

HarperCollins and the team at Killer Reads have shared a couple of videos featuring crime authors Tim Rob Smith and Mark Billingham being interviewed on their work by fellow crime writer Simon Toyne.

In the first clip, below, Tim Rob Smith – author of Child 44 and The Farm – talks about London Spy, the television series he’s written which premiered on BBC Two last week. Wearing his rather hipster-ish wavy sweatshirt, he explains why the story worked best as a first person TV programme rather than a book or film.

In the second piece of video, Mark Billingham and Tom Rob Smith discuss what it’s like to be both an author and a reader, and that particular skill of knowing what readers are going to make of your work.

Let us know what you think – these videos are just tasters and it seems like there will be more to come! You can visit the Killer Reads website here.
