The author of crime and contemporary women’s fiction shares her five favourite reads with Judith Spelman


Eva Woods grew up in a small Northern Irish village and now lives in London. She runs a writing course for commercial novels and regularly teaches creative writing. As a writer you could say she has a split personality because she writes in two genres under two different names. Eva Woods and Claire McGowan are one and the same person. As Claire McGowan she writes crime fiction and as Eva Woods she writes contemporary women’s fiction. She also teaches, lectures and writes scripts She says she likes to ‘think of myself as being a cross between Jessica Fletcher (only slightly younger), Carrie Bradshaw (only with fewer shoes), and Sylvia Plath’. She offers a free ebook with her tips on writing if you sign up for her newsletter. Eva’s latest book, is How to be Happy, subtitled ‘It’s the small things that make the biggest difference’.
