Robin Burcell: Californian Cop to thriller writer

From Nine To Noon, 10:06 am on 12 July 2018

Robin Burcell was a police officer in California for almost 30 years. After she retired from the force, she focused on her writing career and then came a call up of a different kind. She received an invitation from the international best selling author Clive Cussler, who asked whether she would like to co-write a book with him. Since then Robin has been on a whirlwind ride, writing stories with one of her heroes. The latest, The Grey Ghost, is out now. She tells Kathryn about her life as a cop, a forensic artist and how she pours all that experience into her writing.
