Helen Cullen sat down with Martin Doyle, Books Editor of The Irish Times, to discuss how she became a writer and the process of writing her acclaimed debut novel, The Lost Letters of William Woolf. The interview took place late last month in The Book Centre, a majestic bookshop that was formerly a cinema in the heart of Waterford city, as part of the Waterford Writers Weekend festival curated by Rick O’Shea.
