I won't be on any panels at CrimeFest this year, but I'll be at the festival between 9-12 May so I can catch up with readers and writing friends, as well as hearing some of my writing heroes chat about their writing journeys and new books!

If you see me there, tap me on the shoulder and say "hi" – I'd love to meet you!
