Today Marie talked to local author Angela Clarke about her new book, "Watch Me", which came out in January. It is the second in the 'Social Media Murders' series, which is a series of serial killer and mystery books themed on different social media platforms. This book is centred on Snapchat because it is the fastest growing social media platform at the moment.
This book series explores the darker side of social media, and centres on two female lead characters, one of which is a journalist, with the other being a DS with the Metropolitan Police.
As well as the 'Social Media Murders' series, Angela has also written a more humorous, upbeat book called "Confessions of a Fashionista", which was published in 2013. She has also written for the Guardian and online feminist magazine 'Vagenda'. In response to these articles, she was trolled online and from that started to think about social media and its less friendly side.
