In this episode of The Creative Life Podcast I talk with Laurence O’Bryan about creative writing. He is an Irish mystery and thriller writer who is dedicated to helping promote other authors. Laurence dreamed of becoming a writer from childhood when he would tell adventure stories to friends that lived on his street. Now three novels later and with a series of literary awards he is not only a successful writer but helps other writers find new audiences with his site BooksGoSocial.com. His latest book is called ‘The Nuremberg Puzzle’, a fast-paced thriller that centres around the rise of violent anti-refugee groups spreading across Germany.
