Irish detectives, I’m coming to visit this weekend! I’ll be speaking at Dublin’s ILF, as well as stopping by Eason’s on O’Connell Street. I’m also going to be working with Poetry Ireland’s Writers in Schools scheme on the Monday and Tuesday … so you never know, I might come visit your school!… Read more
I’ve had a very busy weekend – I visited two of my favourite festivals in two days, and had two incredible events!
On Saturday I went to Oxford Literary Festival, and I got to speak in one of the most amazing venues in the UK, the Sheldonian Theatre. It’s incredibly beautiful and old and ornate – I feel honoured to have been allowed to hold an event there, and it was especially amazing to talk about my childhood in Oxford, and writing Murder Most Unladylike while I worked at Blackwell’s Oxford, in those surroundings!… Read more
I have a wonderful German Detective Society. My German publishers, Knesebeck Verlag, are fantastic, and they’ve done a great job of bringing Daisy and Hazel to Germany. And next month, I’m going to be in Germany too!
I love going to literary festivals – I always meet so many interesting people, and it’s an honour to talk to the fans who come to my sessions. Usually, though, I visit festivals in the UK and Ireland – so it’s incredible to travel to other countries and realise that there are Detective Society members there as well!… Read more
UPDATE on 28th June: due to massive demand, this event sold out almost immediately on the day that tickets were released. I’m aware that lots of you missed out, and I am working with my publicist and the Festival to create some alternative ways to meet me. Please keep watching this website for updates!… Read more

This weekend was wonderful and very busy for me – I went to two festivals and spoke at two fantastic events!
On Saturday I went to the Cambridge Festival. I used to live in Cambridge, and I set my book Mistletoe and Murder there, so the Cambridge Festival is always very special for me.… Read more

If you’d like to come meet me and hear about my books, there will be lots of opportunities – and the first will be on Saturday 10th February at 3pm at the Southbank Centre, as part of their Imagine Festival.… Read more
I was so pleased to be invited to the Ilkey Festival this year! Ilkley is a lovely town (it has a Betty’s, which is pretty much my test of excellence), and its book festival has been running since the 1970s.
I spoke about The Guggenheim Mystery on Saturday morning to a really wonderful audience – thank you so much to everyone who came, and thank you to Ilkley Festival for hosting me!… Read more
