I’ve always been a great people-watcher and I like to imagine putting ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, taking them out of their comfort zone and watching how they react.

For Before It’s Too Late, it was the idea of what would happen if someone was kidnapped and kept hostage in a disused pit in the Warwickshire countryside. What would they go through, how would they feel, as the police work around the clock to try to find them and track down their abductor? I enjoyed intertwining the storylines so that we saw the investigation from both the victim and the detective.
