Matthew Costello and Neil Richards both set out as script writers, their credits including The Disney Channel, PBS, the BBC, and many others. Their writing partnership goes back to the late 90’s and the two have written many hours of TV together. Their Cherringham series is their first crime fiction as co-writers. They will be taking part in the Endeavour Press Crime Fiction Festival.

So, Matt – the guys at Endeavour Press want 500 words on Cherringham – and how we collaborate. What with you in New York and me in the New Forest… Seems like a good idea maybe to write it by Skype – since a lot of the time Skype is the way we work together. I think at last count we’ve written 25 Cherringham novellas this way – plus a full-length mystery (Dead in the Water, pub Oct 10) – and we’re now in the middle of writing mystery number 2 in the series – The Body in the Woods. Of course, real-life meetings are always going to be a big part of our collaboration – want to talk about that?
