Coming Up: Hannah’s Bookshelf at 2pm with guest novelist Clio Gray

Tune in to Hannah’s Bookshelf this Saturday at 2pm on North Manchester FM. This week, my guest will be the brill Clio Gray.

Clio was born in Yorkshire, and after a childhood spent by the sea in Saltburn and next in Devon, she studied Philosophy and History of Art before going on to qualify as a librarian, working amongst the books that she has always loved. Moving to the Highlands of Scotland in the 1990s, where she still lives and works, she was inspired by the stunning landscapes and unique Nordic connections to write.

Learning the craft first with short stories, she won a number of prestigious prizes including the The Scotsman Orange Short Story Competition in 2006. She also won the Harry Bowling First Novel Award for Guardians of the Key, and has gone on to publish a total of 13 books so far, with another three completed and ready to go. The latest of these is Stumblestone, published in 2022 by Sparsile.

I’ll be talking to Clio about Stumblestone, and about her writing in general. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.

Catch the show on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
