Polly Ho-Yen is the author of BOY IN THE TOWER, FLY ME HOME, and numerous other books for children. Polly's first novel for adults is DARK LULLABY, the story of a mother who is trying hold her family together in a society where parenting standards are strictly monitored.
DARK LULLABY is available from Titan.
And you can find more about Polly on her website.
Polly and I spoke about teaching and writing and why we both need a better system for organising our reading.
Polly mentioned these books during the interview:
- HOLD BACK THE STARS by Katie Khan
- A MONSTER CALLS by Patrick Ness
- A SWIM IN A POND IN THE RAIN by George Saunders
Thank you very much, Polly, it was a hugely entertaining chat.
If you enjoy these conversations, and if you can manage it, please consider getting me virtual coffee. It will really help.

Thanks for listening.
See you next time.
