Read an interview with Trevor about his writing on Famous Writing Routines.

"I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to crime writing. Everyone has a different creative process and I wouldn’t dream of dictating what that should be. There are an abundance of theories and ideas out there about how to write the perfect novel, none of which suit everyone. My aim is to help the students find the methods that work best for them."
