Today I’m sharing a post that’s a little different. I’m shouting about a brand new podcast by crime writer Rachel Amphlett with thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me to join in!
Here’s some information about Case Files: Short Crime Fiction Stories.
Crime fiction author Rachel Amphlett has created a plot twist for mystery fans – a short story podcast.
Inspired by research from Bookwire that revealed Gen Z enjoys listening to crime stories as much as reading them, Rachel headed to the recording studio.
If you love audio drama or true crime podcasts, then Case Files: Short Crime Fiction Stories is just for you. With each episode of the series less than an hour, you can grab a crime fiction fix over lunch, while walking the dog, or in the gym. Season one will see a new story released each week from September 26 to October 31 and a second season is in production.
About Rachel Amphlett:
Rachel has written more than 30 crime novels and short stories featuring spies, detectives, vigilantes, and assassins. The USA Today bestselling author has created two detective series, Detective Kay Hunter and Detective Mark Turpin as well as thrillers featuring Dan Taylor and Eva Delacourt.
Inspired by reading books as a child, her aim is ‘to write gripping stories that you won’t want to put down’.
She said: “The first tales I fell in love with were written by Stephen King, Richard Matheson, Rod Serling and Roald Dahl. They wrote short stories where the good guys didn’t always win, where I found myself smiling at what the bad guys sometimes got away with. I’d often feel a shiver of anticipation as the page turned and the author posed the question “What if?” For example, what if a contract killer needed to see a chiropractor o regular basis? And what if you discovered that your husband was a serial killer? What would you do?”
You can hear the trailer above. (Spoiler: it sounds amazing!) The first full episode is available from Monday 26th September. I listened on Spotify, but you can listen through all good podcast apps.
