Denzil Meyrick, Mari Hannah & RJ Mitchell: Inside Job – Police and Probation Officers turn to Crime22nd Apr 2015 • 6:00PM - 7:00PM • Mitchell Library
Three authors who had experience working in the British Justice system before turning their hands to crime fiction discuss their work
They do say when setting out to write a book you should "Write what you know’". The three authors on this crime panel all had experience working in the British Justice system before turning their hands to crime fiction.
Denzil Meyrick, author of 'Whisky From Small Glasses' and RJ Mitchell, 'Parallel Lines', were both police officers while Mari Hannah, author of the DCI Kate Daniels series ('Killing for Keeps' the most recent) worked for many years as a probation officer before she was injured on duty and took up writing.
Chaired by Mason Cross.
Tickets are £9 plus booking fee, available from the festival website. Looking forward to this one a lot, as it will be my first time chairing one as opposed to being one of the panellists.
I'm also excited to be at Aye Write as an author for the first time and taking part in a great festival in the beautiful Edwardian surroundings of Glasgow's Mitchell Library (where I've actually done quite a lot of writing in the past).
