This week in the authors studio we have former met police officer and ex soldier turned crime writer, Matt Johnson. Matt was discharged from the police with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and whilst undergoing treatment, he was encouraged by his counsellor to write about his career and his experience of murders, shootings and terrorism. And so one evening, he sat at his computer and started to weave his notes into a work of fiction… And his first novel The Wicked Game was a global success!

I would love to know if writing has helped you overcome any personal issues? What advice can you share with fellow writers?
