Hania Allen interview by Chris Hodghton

I interviewed the fabulous crime writing author Hania Allen at the DCA this morning. If you’ve not read her novels … I would certainly recommend them. Her latest ones, The Polish Detective and Clearing the Dark are gripping and layered with detail. They are set in Dundee. I now just need to get a map as a non-Dundonian and find the settings for the scenes… 😊

Chris Hodghton -Hello and no regrets!


Let me introduce myself … I’m Chris, a ** aged Welsh girl living in fabulous Fife. (After all a lady should never reveal her age!) I have lived in Scotland for over eighteen years and love it here.

I have always wanted to do my masters degree and also to write a novel. Despite these “forever dreams” of mine, and over **  years since first graduating with my BEd. (Hons), it was a rather impulsive decision to join the MLitt Writing Study & Practice  degree at Dundee in September. It was  extremely close to the start of the first semester, and I resigned my permanent teaching job a month later!

No regrets about my impulsiveness – loving it all !
