403: Setting as Character in Speculative Fiction – Interview with Rob Hart

Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Rob Hart.

Rob is the author of The Warehouse, a gripping speculative thriller which sold in more than 20 countries and was optioned for film by Ron Howard. He is also the author of the Ash McKenna series, the short story collection Take-Out, and Scott Free with James Patterson. His latest book is The Paradox Hotel, about a hotel at the crossroads of the space-time continuum.


In this episode Rob Hart and I discuss:

  • Why naming characters is important and where he found the names for these characters. 
  • How to write an unlikeable character that your readers will actually like.
  • Using storytelling to shine a light on bad things that are happening in the real world.


Plus, his #1 tip for writers.
