My publishers, No Exit Press, hosted a very successful Crime Evening at St. Albans Central Library on Thursday 21 March. I was on the panel with fellow No Exit authors Leigh Russell and Howard Linskey. We each spoke about why we write, how we came to be novelists, and our individual books. The audience was very receptive and asked a number of excellent questions. Following this, we signed copies of our books. Ion Mills and Claire Watts from No Exit were in attendance and welcomed everyone, as well as making sure everything ran smoothly. As you will see from the photo, the evening also had its lighter moments. Leigh, Howard and I were pleased to pose on the crime scene mat, but we declined Ion’s suggestion of filling the outline of the missing body!
The event was part of Hertfordshire’s Lit Fest 13. I will be speaking and signing books at the Oundle Festival on Friday 19 April and at Royston Library on Wednesday 24 April.
