Crime Cymru will be putting on Wales’s first international crime fiction festival – Gŵyl CRIME CYMRU Festival – next year in Aberystwyth but before that we’re running a free online festival this year. between April 26th and May 3rd. You can find our whole, exciting programme on the website here. Our guests include household names Lee Child, Clare Mackintosh, Peter James, Elly Griffiths, Abir Mukherjee and a host of others!
I’m delighted to be involved in 4 of the 18 online events, both as interviewer and interviewee.

Event #4 – I’ll be talking to bestsellers Mari Hannah and Emma Kavanagh and Crime Cymru newcomer Alison Layland about how our personal experiences as authors make their way into our fiction. Book your free tickets here.
