Welcome to #TimeForCrime a new series here at Chapterinmylife.

I am inviting bloggers and authors talk about their favourite subject crime, with a set of quick-fire Q&As taking you to the dark heart of the person behind the book or the blog!

This week I am delighted to welcome blogger, Claire from #AKnightsReads

Name: Claire Knight

About you: I’m Claire and I’m from Leeds.  I work in the really exciting world of pensions and I escape reality in my books. Until recently, I was the guest reviewer on #CrimeBookJunkie but I have now flown the nest and I’m flying solo with my own wee blog called A Knight’s Reads.  When I’m not working or reading, I have my hubby and two adorable boys to look after.



Let’s delve into the depths of Claire’s mind…

Why crime fiction? To be honest, I don’t remember not reading some form of crime fiction or watching crime drama on television.  Maybe there is a part of me that wanted to be a detective and this is my way of being one. I love the twists, the turns and the grand reveals.  I try to work out who, why and how. 

Favourite book you have reviewed Too hard!!!!  I have read some blooming brilliant books over the past few years

You are stranded on a desert island, you can take one book, what will it be what an evil question……I’m going to cheat and plump for my kindle….well it’s a book of sorts….

Do you have a kill list and who is on it? If I told you I’d have to kill you…..depending on the day of the week, there are a few people who would hit my kill list but it wouldn’t be fair to tell them in advance…..or did you mean fictional!?

Top criminal (real or fiction)   I have to say I love S Williams’ Tuesday from Tuesday Falling.  She’s a vigilante dishing out justice in her own way

Top fictional detective  From an early age I’ve loved Hercule Poirot, the bumbling Belge with his little grey cells.

Planner or pantser/organised or beautifully chaotic I tend to plan the reads I need to read in a month but once they’re done, its what takes my fancy

Favourite method of murder The more warped the better.  My favourite of recent times has been Graham Smith using a nail gun!  Saying that I’ve just read Roz Watkins’ The Devil’s Dice and this starts with death by cake!!!

Best place to dispose a body  All I’ll say is read Netta Newbound’s An Impossible Dilemma

Where can we find you? (Oh your blog details, dafty, any personal haunts send them to me privately!)Twitter: @clairekreads; Blog: https://aknightsreads.wordpress.com/

Wow! Thank you Claire, I love your cheat questions, who wouldn’t take their kindle to the desert island and what a twisted mind you have, I can say that having read and enjoyed a lot of the books that you have!

  1. Hhhhhmmmmmm…….Kindle!!! Cheating, however, I shall use my little grey cells ala Hercule Poirot and point out the massive flaw in the plan! The Kindle would need to be recharged when it ran out of juice! Ergo, still no better off as I’m fairly sure there wouldn’t be electricity and a plug socket on a desert island! 🙂
