Harrogate Crime Writing Festival
Got back last night from the fabulous Harrogate Crime Writing Festival. It was really well-organised and gave great opportunities to meet other authors as well as some lovely readers. The panels were really interesting and included one on Class, The Underworld, and Emerald Noir. I also attended a lovely reading by Simon Brett from his book The Liar In The Library.
One of the real highlights was the gig at which the Fun Lovin' Crime Writers played - featuring Val McDermid on vocals and Mark Billingham on bass guitar. The atmosphere was amazing.
