Join us for a night full of murder celebrating tartan noir with three of our favourite Scottish crime writers - James Oswald, Gordon J. Brown and Stuart Johnstone. Come along to hear all about how they got into crime-writing, how they come up with characters, crime-scenes and murder weapons, and if they manage to sleep at night after creating all those gruesome killings that spill out of their pens.
About the Authors:
James Oswald is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling Inspector McLean series of detective mysteries, as well as the new DC Constance Fairchild series. James’s first two books, Natural Causes and The Book Of Souls, were both short-listed for the prestigious CWA Debut Dagger Award. His latest book, All that Lives, is the twelfth book in the Inspector Mclean Series. He's also written an 5-book epic fantasy series, The Ballad of Sir Benfro. James farms Highland cows in North East Fife by day and writes disturbing fiction by night.
Gordon J. Brown (aka Morgan Cry) has ten crime and thriller books published to date, including his latest book, Any Day Now, plus Six Wounds and Thirty-One Bones (written under his expat alias Morgan Cry is a Spanish set euro thriller), along with a novella and a number of short stories. Gordon is a founding director of Bloody ScotlandCrime Writing Festival, a DJ on local radio, and also runs a strategic planning consultancy. In a former life Gordon delivered pizzas in Toronto, sold non-alcoholic beer in the Middle East, and was once booed by 49,000 people while on the pitch at a major football Cup Final.
Stuart Johnstone is the author of the Don Colyear crime series with the third book in the series, Run To Ground, being released last November. As well as crime fiction, Stuart also likes to write in other genres, including dystopian and horror. His big break came when he found himself published alongside one of his literary heroes, Stephen King. He lives in Edinburgh where he runs a crazy little shop for dogs, which keeps him busy when he’s not writing. He boasts the most bizarre CV, including a BA and MA in Creative Writing and ten years as a police officer - this comes in quite handy with the crime fiction.
