How I turned to a life of crime writing: Olga Wojtas at Bloody Scotland

“I didn’t realise I had written a crime novel until my publisher informed me, just before publication. I thought I had written a romp, albeit one with a significant number of murders.” Olga Wojtas, a former Open University creative writing student, will be one of four authors discussing their debut novels at a Bloody Scotland event this week.
