“I want to show violence for what it is.  For so long, women weren’t expected to talk about these crimes, even though we were more likely to be the victims. . . . when I was growing up, these subjects were ‘boys only’ territory in fiction, so I find it refreshing to see authors like Mo hayder and Denise Mina really opening up the conversation about abuse and sexual assault.  This isn’t to say that men are not capable of writing about these topics, only that women authors bring a different perspective.”
