I have written in many genres over the years, but I do really enjoy writing dark thrillers/horror. I do always like to inject a level of black humour into even my darkest writing though. There has to be a glimpse of light for the reader to better appreciate the dark.

I write in a literary way probably because I’m a poet at heart and can’t help loving word play and metaphorical language! I do still feel literary work should be accessible and pacy though and that’s why I also admire writers like Anne Tyler and Anita Shreve who are great storytellers, but also write with real elegance.

I think I’m definitely most comfortable writing in the YA/fantasy genre, although at some point I would like to have a go at something a little different... I’d say it’s a case of sticking to what you know, subjects you can relate to. I read a lot of YA fiction and I love anything that falls into the fantasy genre... I guess I’ve written a book that I would buy myself.

Interview With True Crime Writer, William Lobban, On His Bestselling Autobiography ‘The Glasgow Curse’ Plus eBook Giveaway

February 12, 2014 // 6 Comments

I’m now perceived as an author, a title I like very much and certainly it’s much better than being labelled a gangster that’s for sure... I can channel this fresh, positive energy into things which are a million miles removed from those that defined my life before. Writing has also given me a newfound purpose, a sense of direction, and an enthusiastic aptitude to move forward in a different light whilst simultaneously putting the past firmly behind me.

I like writing about relationships and people. I like to write about subjects that people can relate to. I want my stories to make people think. I want them to be emotive... I think I am quite an emotional person and very interested in the psychology of people...why people are the way they are, what made them like that and how people react to others.

I like to...tell the reader about the insecurities of a criminal character, the reasons behind their actions. I like to develop an anti-hero, as they’re always the most interesting characters, someone that the reader knows is a wrong'un but still cares for. I also like to delve into relationships, criminal to criminal, the loyalties, rivalries and double-crossing, and criminal to law keeper, the mutual respect, the game of cat and mouse and how one gets the upper hand.
