The scene was set in St John’s Library, Worcester, for an enjoyable evening spent in the company of four, fairly new, crime authors for Worcester Literary Festival’s Illustrious Crime Panel. Chaired by local girl Cally Taylor (C L Taylor), author of The Accident and The Lie, Sarah Hilary, author of Someone Else’s Skin, for which she has been nominated for Crime Novel of the Year at Harrogate and No Other Darkness, Clare Mackintosh, who’s debut novel I Let You Go, is a Times Best Seller and is one of the current Richard and Judy Book Club Reads, and Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls, who has been awarded an Edgar award and has Steven King’s endorsement on the front cover.
I have reviewed many of Meg Sander's books, which she has co-written under the psuedoymn Annie Sanders, on this blog and we have missed each other at the last two ChipLit Festivals, so it was lovely to finally meet her and here is the obligatory photograph.

Last year I was asked to be a part of Jeff Povey's debut children's novel, Shift. I was very lucky to share the first chapter with you, my blog readers, of his novel which was described as an apocalyptically funny and thrilling read for young adult readers. Now, twelve months on, Jeff is back with his second book, Delete, which is the sequel to Shift, and is again visiting my blog, this time with a conversation between Ape and Non-Ape

Thank you to T R Richmond for visiting my blog today, I too loved The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4 and also Bridget Jones's Diary, but I think I would have to add 64 Charring Cross Road by Helene Hanff to my list, which is a series of letters between Helene, who lives in New York, and an antiquarian bookshop specialising in rare and antique books in Charring Cross Road, London.
