I'm delighted to be returning to Crimefest in May 2011 at the Bristol Royal Marriott Hotel and will be on a panel discussion on Friday 20 May at 9am.   Crimefest is a convention for people who like to read an occasional crime novel as well as for die-hard fanatics. It is now one of the most popular dates in the crime fiction calendar and draws top crime novelists, readers, editors, publishers and reviewers from around the world. It follows the format of US conventions and includes interviews, panels, a gala dinner, and one or two surprises.

On Friday, 20 May between 9.00am and 9.50am I will be discussing Operation Petticoat: Jobs For The Girls? with fellow crime writers, Linda Regan, Leigh Russell, Aline Templeton and Ruth Dudley Edwards.  We'll be talking about the role of women in crime novels and as crime authors, and no doubt lots of other things 'criminal' in between. All my marine mystery crime novels and thrillers are written from the male point of view and have a strong male protagonist  with Inspector Andy Horton in my police procedurals and Adam Greene and Alex Albury in my stand alone thrillers, In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill, so it should be an interesting discussion.
