Three Things with Nina Whyle, Authors of From Dusty With Love

I’m always fascinated by writing partnerships and when I heard Nina Whyle had a new book out I simply had to invite them onto Linda’s Book Bag. Bearing in mind we’re heading well into the festive season of the three kings, I thought I’d ask the ladies to tell me three things about From Dusty With Love and themselves.

Published on 6th December 2022, From Dusty With Love is available for purchase here.

From Dusty With Love

There’s a new spy on the block and what she lacks in skills she makes up for with perky enthusiasm.

Out of work actress Dusty Hall, is recruited into His Majesty’s Secret Service and this might be her best role yet! In training she meets Yazmin Khan, the epitome of a walking lethal weapon and a total badass. The two women couldn’t be more different but together they make the perfect duo.

Ready or not, the duo are sent on their first undercover mission: to infiltrate a Moroccan hotelier and suspected arms smuggler, Ahmed Al Sahid. Except there’s a snag, it falls on her sister Coco’s hen weekend. As maid-of-honour it is Dusty’s duty to ensure the bride-to-be has the best hen weekend ever! Coco is not someone you want to disappoint and is far scarier than any deadly, undercover operation. So, Dusty comes up with a cunning plan, to kill two birds with one stone, why not invite all the hens to Marrakech, job done. All she has to do is keep the two worlds apart – what could possibly go wrong?

Three Things

A Guest post by Nina Whyle

As in our friendship, when we are writing we just pick up where we left off. We don’t really have a big discussion about who’s writing what and because we have very limited writing time anyway, we just sort of get on with it. We do have a laugh in the process and perhaps a glass on occasion.

Writing in a Duo

 1) Firmly leave your ego at the door

 2)  Know and like each other’s writing style. Seems obvious but you need to love what the other does otherwise there’ll be conflict 

 3) Be each other’s sounding block, the good, the bad, and hopefully not the ugly. Draw strength and inspiration from one another, you’re not in competition- you are a partnership. Have lots of fun with it

Three Things about Clare

1) I’m a vegetarian Sci-fi Fan.  No, it’s not some weird new genre, it’s two facts. Mildly interesting?

2) Spent most of my adult life in Copenhagen until 2013

3) I have the most stubborn and wilful Maltese called Lolly (aka – Cato disguised in a fluffy white coat)

Three Things about Nina

1) Before children I worked as an Assistant Editor in TV & Films

2) I have written, directed and produced a short film called, Sucking is a fine quality in women and vacuum cleaners

You can watch it on Youtube here

3) I have two cats Bean and Smudge and a Bassett Hound called Potter. He’s the slowest dog in the village.


With those facts I think readers are going to be intrigued about your new book From Dusty With Love! Thanks ladies.
