In our ‘Summer Reads’ podcast series, we chat with freelance journalists who have written successful books. Bringing the first episode of series eight back with a bang is Lisa Bradley, the author of two psychological thrillers – Paper Dolls and The Lesson. 

Lisa began her writing career in local news and subsequently worked as a freelance journalist for national papers and magazines. She is now a lecturer in journalism at the University of Sheffield. We chat about the importance of nailing your first draft and finding success after rejection.
