Book Week Scotland 2013




I loved being part of  The Scottish Book Trust’s Book Week Scotland last year, so am super delighted to have been invited to help celebrate Book Week Scotland again this year.

Book Week Scotland is about celebrating books and reading in every part of life in Scotland. Between 25 November and 1 December 2013, people of all ages and of all walks of life will be able to come together in libraries, schools, community venues and workplaces to share and enjoy books and reading. They will be joined in this celebration by Scotland’s authors, poets, playwrights, storytellers and illustrators to bring a packed programme of free projects and events to life.

Yesterday, the 26th November, I was at the lovely St Ninian’s Library just outside Stirling, talking about the inspiration behind the writing of The Blue Suitcase and Food of Ghosts. And what a great “feisty “audience – brilliant questions! I look forward to returning to the library one day!


On Thursday the 27th November, as part of the wonderful BLOODY SCOTLAND on Tour, I’ll be in Lasswade with fellow crime writers Aline Templeton and Alex Gray. We’ll be talking about all sorts of dastardly things! Come and join us!

Lasswade – Lasswade Library, 7pm 19 Eskdale Drive, Bonnyrigg, EH19 2LA – 0131 271 4534 Free and not ticketed. – See more at:
