Reading Between the Lines

Today the Reading Between the Lines festival began, and I was very fortunate to be on a panel this afternoon with Jackie Baldwin and Val Penny.

Before the event we read one another’s books and used those as a basis for the discussion.

All three books have a strong theme of family, not just blood relations, though of course there are plenty of those, but the families we choose to be part of, through friendship, proximity, work and whatever it is that brings people together.

If you want to hear what we had to say, check out the YouTube Reading Between the Lines channel and look for our video, should be up soon. Of course because this is a channel, you’ll also find all the other events there. And congratulations to Lynsey Adams from doing the hard work of pulling all this together.

If you want to read these fabulous books, here are the links
Dead Man’s Prayer
Hunter’s Chase

World Book Day

It’s World Book Day so I thought I’d share some of my favourite books.

The book I’ve read more than any other: Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

The book I was blown away by, and have been reading the author ever since, and the author that makes me want to be a better author:  The Business of Dying, Simon Kernick

The book that surprised and amused me, so I read a lot of his other work: The Sacred Art of Stealing, Christopher Brookmyre

The book I laughed my arse off at, and am now working my way through the series:  The Heretics of De’Ath, Howard of Warwick

The book a friend of mine wrote and I loved more than I’d expected to (because I don’t tend to read historical books): The Wrong Sort To Die, Paula Harmon

The book I read so far this year that’s likely to stay with me longest: Dead Man’s Prayer, Jackie Baldwin

The crime book I’m most proud to have written:  The Chair, GB Williams
