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 Sandra who blogs over at BookLoverWorm
Name: Sandra Woodhead
About you: I live in Perthshire with my partner and two cats. When I’m not reading or blogging, or thinking about reading or blogging I’m either at work, studying toward my MSc or making good use of any free time on my PS4 or watching a film.
So let’s delve into the depths of Sandra’s mind…
Why crime fiction?
I’ve always loved crime fiction. I started off reading things like Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys,Famous Five and Secret Seven when I was younger and I think it was because the mystery,the unknown, appealed to me. As I’ve got older that fascination with mystery is still there but in addition I’m fascinated by murder (that’s not what I meant!). Life is precious and over far too soon so that fact that some people can take that away from others fascinates me, I want to know why and how and how they felt during and after and everything. I’m basicallyvery curious and want to know everything.
Favourite book you have written(reviewed)
This is a hard choice to make but if I narrow it down to crime only I would have to say Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent. I loved that book, it grabbed me the second I started it and didn’t let go.
You are stranded on a desert island, you can take one book, what will it be
Much as I love crime I’d have to say the complete works of Jane Austen. I have a copy on
my bookcase and I know it would keep me going while I adjusted to the island or waited to be rescued.
Do you have a kill list and who is on it?
Now that would be telling! Yes I do, it’s short, very short but they do say all the best things come in small packages…….
Top criminal (real or fiction)
Alex Thorne from Angela Marson’s DI Kim Stone series. I can’t quite describe how I felt
about her but she was fascinating and oddly addictive in a way.
Top fictional detective
There are lots of detectives I like, both historical and present but I think I’d have to say
Planner or pantser/organised or beautifully chaotic
Absolute chaos though somehow I manage to get everything done on time!! I am a huge
procrastinator and leave everything till the last-minute but have never yet submitted a late essay or missed a blog tour because of it so I don’t think I’m going to change anytime soon.
Favourite method of murder
Probably suffocation. It’s less messy than stabbing or hitting over the head and quicker than poisoning.
Best place to dispose a body
I wouldn’t dispose of it. Why would I do that when I could watch the panic and chaos that would (hopefully) ensue from what I had done?
Where can we find you? (Oh your blog details, dafty, any personal haunts send them
to me privately!)

Thank you Sandra for taking part! I am absolutely loving your logic behind her method of murder! Why give yourself extra cleaning up to do or take away precious reading time!
