Kirkby-in-Ashfield Library, Kirkby-in-Ashfield

Time -
Venue Kirkby-in-Ashfield Library

Join two brilliant crime writers who set their work amongst the atmospheric scenery of the Derbyshire Peaks. Why is the area such fertile ground for books full of deadly menace?  What is life like for writers who set their novels so close to home?  Sarah and Roz will discuss their inspirations and approaches to keeping it local.

Sarah Ward has written four highly-acclaimed DC Childs novels: In Bitter Chill, A Deadly Thaw, A Patient Fury and The Shrouded Path all set in the Derbyshire Peak District, where she lives. She was a 2015 Amazon Rising Start and A Patient Fury was an Observer Thriller of the Month.

Roz Watkins is the author of the DI Meg Dalton series, which is set in the Peak District, where Roz lives with her partner and a menagerie of demanding animals. Her first novel, The Devil’s Dice, was shortlisted for the Debut Dagger Award and was The Times crime book of the month, whilst her second book in the series Dead Man's Daughter was a Times Top Pick.
