Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival 2017

Very excited to be appearing at Theakstons again this year, with Mark Billingham, Steve Mosby, Belinda Bauer and Melanie Raabe. From the programme:

"How did they think of THAT…? Unpick the criminal masterminds behind the bestsellers. Known for being an all-round lovely chap, Festival favourite Mark Billingham chairs a panel who are also rather lovely. So what inspires their murderous meanderings? Unpick the ‘dark mind’ behind the charming fa├žade of Sarah Hilary whose brutal but deeply moral books have garnered awards and acclaim. Steve Mosby, the tattoo’d crusader, does disturbing brilliantly. He studied philosophy and did a series of admin jobs (Excel spreadsheets can drive you to murder) before writing full time. The Independent said of award-winning Belinda Bauer that she took ‘the psychological thriller into new territory’. That says something in a well-trod ground. Where does she get her ideas? Finally, get ensnared with Melanie Raabe, the unique premise of her in-demand debut The Trap caused a stir amongst Hollywood producers."
