Ray Banks Interview

The Bloody Scots - Part 4

Ray Banks
Known Aliases: Knucklebuster, DangerBalls
Occupation: Writer, Day Job Drone
Last Known Location: Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England (but he was born in Scotland...swear!)

Listen in as Ray talks about his Cal Innes P.I. series (Saturday's Child, Donkey Punch, No More Heroes, etc.), what kinds of characters he likes and the challenges of writing a P.I. novel set in the U.K. He also reveals his leading picks for "Saturday's Child: On Ice," the P.I. cliche that needs to be retired, and explains how he'd manage the caber toss with his giant coconuts.
