With Moon Blink on the horizon, author Sadie Miller has become the subject of two première interviews.
One in the pages of the latest issue of Starburst (423). On page 43 she is interviewed by Paul Mount and talks briefly about her familiarity with the Brigadier and how she came to write for the series. The full Starburst interview can read online HERE.
And in the pages (52-54) of the latest Doctor Who Magazine (issue 498) she talks more in-depth with Simon Guerrier. To celebrate ten years since her mother, Elisabeth Sladen, returned to Doctor Who as Sarah Jane Smith, Sadie talks about her life growing up as the daughter of a Doctor Who legend, and how she dealt with her mother’s death five years ago. She also explains why she left acting and turned to writing, and discusses Moon Blink in a bit more detail, revealing something of her writing process and what led to her being commissioned by Candy Jar Books.
“July 1969, and mankind is on the Moon. Both the United States and Soviet Russia have lunar bases, and both are in trouble.
Back on Earth, Anne Travers has learned she is about to be visited by an old friend from America, Doctor Patricia Richards. Lance Corporal Bill Bishop is aware of the visit, and is on hand to meet Richards.
She brings with her a surprise, one which the Americans and Russians wish to get their hands on. But the only man who can truly help Anne, Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart, is away in Scotland.
It’s a game of cat and mouse, as Anne and Bishop seek to protect the life of an innocent baby – one that holds the secrets to life on the Moon.”
Moon Blink is out late April, and it currently available for pre-order directly from Candy Jar Books.
