In the Booth with Ruth – Charlie Wade, Author

Charlie Wade

What’s your writing background? When did you begin writing and what inspired you?

I first tried to write when I was eighteen, but never really got anywhere. After reading Irvine Welsh in my mid twenties, I tried again and half finished a comedy spy book. After a few more failed attempts, I eventually finished the book in 2010 and have since written two more thrillers.

How often do you write? And how do you manage to fit in writing among other commitments?

Not as often as I’d like. With working full time, I only get an hour in the evenings to actually write. However, this does mean I know exactly what I’m going to write when I do sit down as it’s already been running around in my head a week or two.

In which genre do you most enjoy writing?

Crime fiction but with an element of comedy.

What draws you to write in that genre?

The books I read are mainly crime and thrillers, but I do like something that puts a smile on your face occasionally.

Can you tell me about your current project(s)?

Seven Daze is about a failed assassin who has a week to repay his advance to an East End crime lord. Originally, I was writing about an assassin but when it got to the killing part, the book headed off down a different avenue.

What are your writing plans for the future?

I’m partway through writing three books. I’ve usually got more than one on the go. The next one is provisionally titled Inspector Cliche and is about an aging dinosaur of a police detective who investigates a series of odd murders. I’m also working on a series of zombie apocalypse novels and another crime novel but that’s just in the planning stage.

Where can people find out more about you?

I’ve got a blog at

Seven Daze is available in ebook and paperback on Amazon UK here and Amazon US here and direct from Caffeine Nights.

  2. Fascinating! Nice interview, Ruth. I’ve been a fan of Charlie’s writing for some time and do like the sound of Seven Daze
