My first event of 2020 has been announced! I’ll be appearing not once but TWICE at the inaugural Lyme Crime festival in June, in Lyme Regis.
I will be appearing with CL Taylor, in a general discussion about psychological thrillers, and also talking about my recent road trip in America with Ed James, which should be very funny.
Tickets for the festival, taking place from June 26-28, are on sale now at an early bird rate (30% off) and you can buy them here.
On Friday, June 26 from 7.30pm to 8.30pm – How far would you go to research your crime novel? Myself and Ed James will discuss our recent research trip to the Pacific Northwest, where we flew to Seattle, got lost in Oregon and nearly run off the road on Interstate 5 – all in search of authentic detail.
On Saturday, June 27 from 11.30am to 12.30pm – Me and C.L.Taylor will be in conversation. We have both written books described as ‘extraordinary things happening to ordinary people’. We will discuss what inspires us, how we write, what makes a great psychological thriller and the challenges and highlights of our careers.
This is the very first Lyme Crime festival and it launches in June next year at the Marine Theatre, in historic Lyme Regis.
The crime and thriller festival sees the very best talents in the fiction genre join together for a weekend of talks, conversations, panels and other events.
Also, Serendip, the town’s independent bookseller, will have a shop open in the theatre for the weekend, so visitors can buy signed copies of participating authors’ titles.
