The line up for Granite Noir 2020 has been announced! Some big names in fiction, including Ian Rankin, Denise Mina, Ben Aaronovitch, and Ambrose Parry (AKA Chris Brookmyre & Dr Marisa Haetzman) and a host of authors from around the world, will be heading to Aberdeen in February to take part in the North East’s biggest crime writing festival.
And so it is that I’m extremely excited to say I’ll be taking part myself as one of the festival’s Locals in the Limelight!
You can see me perform an excerpt from my short story Sherry Sherry (published in ‘Hardboiled’ by Dead Guns Press, 2018) at an event called Also Known As at the Lemon Tree on Saturday 22nd February at 2pm.
Also Known As will feature three crime writers who write under a variety of pseudonyms – appearing here as CM Ewan, John Lincoln, and Sarah Lotz – in a discussion chaired by Jacky Collins.
I’m a big fan of Sarah Lotz (you can read my mini review of her funny, creepy horror novel set on Mount Everest, The White Road, here) so I really am looking forward to being the warm-up act for this!
I’ll also be appearing at a reading event at the Central Library on the same day at 11.30am.
Tickets are £9.50, and you can get hold of them/peruse the full line-up here.
