Blog tour: My writing process

Thanks to Judi Moore, multi-talented author of “Is death really necessary?” for inviting me to join the blog tour that hunts out the answers to four questions. Mercifully, "Is death really necessary?" isn't one of them. Judi’s answers can be found here.  Mine are below.

Murder in the Library

I've been saving this one for now because it wouldn't do to post two exhibitions at once, even though we did rush from one to the other on the same day. The British Library isn't far from the British Museum, so we hurried up there to have a look at their Murder in the Library … Continue reading Murder in the Library

Bodies – Beyond The Bookshop

They've already demonstrated how a huge number of crime readers and writers can cram themselves into one shop on a summer evening. Now the organisers of the annual 'Bodies in the Bookshop' extravangza have decided it's time for a new challenge.  On Saturday 14 July they'll be showing us all how to move a whole … Continue reading Bodies – Beyond The Bookshop

Greenbelt, and the strange passing of time

I've been trying to think of something clever and entertaining to say about the Greenbelt Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse, but it was just... too big. Too exhuberant. Too thought-provoking, and too gloriously diverse to pull together in a few words. (Which is a poor show for someone who calls herself a writer, I know.)
