Novelist, journalist and PR consultant Angela Makholwa joins Fred Khumalo in studio to speak about how her book Critical but Stable has been given a new lease on life.
She has authored a few highly received books since her first novel, the crime thriller Red Ink, was published in 2007.
Makholwa talks about the skepticism she had when taking on the project of telling the story of a convicted serial killer.
Her next book – The 30th Candle – was much lighter, she says.
“Red Ink was very dark and so with The 30th Candle, I just wanted to talk about being a young woman and the pressures that come with reaching that milestone,” she says of the transition between the two books.
This was only the beginning for Makholwa and five novels later, three of her books have been picked up for television. She remains tightlipped on the productions but is happy to speak about how her latest book Critical but Stable is set to be released in the US, UK and across parts of the world.
