Midnight in Karachi Episode 18: Catherine Webb

Welcome back to Midnight in Karachi, a weekly podcast about writers, publishers, editors, illustrators, their books and the worlds they create, hosted by Mahvesh Murad.

This week, a writer with many names joins Mahvesh: Catherine Webb has written over a dozen books under her own name and as Kate Griffin and more recently as Claire North. She’s this year’s Campbell award winner for best novel—The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, released as Claire North—and today she talks about her various pseudonyms, inspiration, writing methods and stories.
