I’ll be setting off early tomorrow morning to the lovely spa-town of Harrogate for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival (19 – 22 July).
The programme is packed with all sorts of wonders, but I’ll be focusing in particular on the wealth of international crime writing talent taking part, including British writers who set their works beyond the UK.
These include the following (and many, many more…)
Harlan Coben (America)
Arne Dahl (Sweden)
Antonio Hill (Spain)
Ryan David Jahn (America)
Camilla Läckberg (Sweden)
Laura Lippman (America)
Liza Marklund (Sweden)
Deon Meyer (South Africa)
Stuart Neville (Northern Ireland)
Margie Orford (South Africa)
Jo Nesbø (Norway)
Jason Webster (England / Spain)
For those of you keen to hear news from the festival as it unfolds, I’ll be tweeting as @Mrs_Pea68, using the hashtag #TOPcrime2012.
If you’re at the festival, perhaps see you in Betty’s or at the bar!
