I was the first Director of the Crime Writers’ Association, the UK body for professional crime authors, and responsible for the prestigious Daggers awards. I also regularly teach workshops and Chair events on writing. I’ve appeared at events such as the York Festival of Writing, the Get Writing conference, the Plymouth book festival, the Belfast book festival, Crimefest, and more. Contact me if you’re interested in booking a workshop or class.
I also run the UK’s first MA in Crime Writing, at City University in London.
