Author of the Murder Most Unladylike and Ministry of Unladylike Activity series, Robin Stevens knows a thing or two about writing murder mysteries. Her focus is on Young Adult (YA) fiction. Robin and host Rebecca Thandi Norman discuss the Poirot mystery Hallowe'en Party, why they keep coming back to it although they agree that it's not Christie's best work, and what makes a murder mystery appropriate for young adult literature. Robin also talks about how Christie inspires her own work, including Poirot as the inspiration for one of her detectives, Hazel Wong. She goes into the connection she feels with her young readers, how her series came about, and what she'll never do in her plots.
