Killer Content with Emily Webb


True crime inspires gripping historical fiction - Rebecca Griffiths

Season 1, Ep. 50

Rebecca Griffiths is a British author whose books had me staying up way too late…which is always a reliable sign of a great read.

Rebecca spoke to me from her home in rural Wales and we chatted about her books, finding confidence in her creativity and her formative life experience that has meant she isn’t afraid to go to some difficult places with her writing.

This conversation discusses topics of Rebecca’s lived experience of abuse when she was a child. As well as some details of the crimes of the killers who feature in her books. 

And when we recorded the conversation, it was before Rebecca’s book The Hidden Child was released and you’ll hear us refer to it as The Body on the Moor. The title changed on publication.
