There’s a reason – several, actually – why crime drama is so popular on television. The thrill of a chase, the whodunnit factor, the edge of seat menace. Our Crime Seen panel at the festival consists of three authors infinitely qualified to discuss why taking crime and thriller books to screen is so successful, as well as give us an insight into the creation of their own work.
Back in 2015, we were privileged to host author Jane Lythell at our Live’n’Local festival, spending a fascinating hour in her company.
Recently, I attended the launch of her fourth book, Behind Her Back, at which the exciting announcement was made that Jane’s debut novel, psychological thriller The Lie of You, has been adapted and will be released as a feature film later this year.

To mark Refugee Week, we’re hosting an event in partnership with the Huguenot Museum on Saturday, June 25 from 11am-2pm.
Britain has a history of offering shelter to displaced peoples, whether due to war or religious persecution, be they Huguenots, Vietnamese boat people, Jewish children escaping the Nazis or Syrians fleeing their war ravaged country.
