How do authors get to the nitty gritty of criminal law procedure? Most will speak to the experts – those dealing with real crime day in, day out.
For this panel though, we bring together the experts themselves, whose non writing profession informs their fictional crime writing through first hand experience.
Our first dedicated crime writing festival is shaping up to be a belter!
Top crime writer Mark Billingham will be headlining, topping off an exciting day of panels around all aspects of crime writing.
Mark will be in conversation with our Patron, author and serving detective, Lisa Cutts, whose latest book, Lost Lives, is being released later this year by Simon and Schuster.
In partnership with Medway Libraries we have two fantastic author talks for you.
A fortuitous meeting in support of a book shop in Maidstone, and a conversation with a mutual friend in Medway Libraries, saw destiny strike while searching for a suitable Patron for our festival.
Lisa Cutts is a new star of the crime writing genre, with her third novel, Mercy Killing – featuring the East Rise Incident Room -due for release by Simon and Schuster on October 20, coinciding nicely with our fourth festival, Written Worlds, Inspiring Places (1-9 October).
