Literary power couple Anna Smaill (Bird Life) and Carl Shuker (The Royal Free) have both recently released stunning new novels.

Anna's first novel, The Chimes, won the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel, while Carl's previous novel, A Mistake, is about to be a feature film. International success has also been accompanied by struggle.

They are in conversation with Emily Perkins to discuss the new books, their life together, and how to survive both artistic setbacks and triumphs.
