BRING ME SOME CRIME

HOME TICKETS

Leigh Russell’s Geraldine Steel crime series has sold over a million copies. Together with her Ian Peterson crime series, and Lucy Hall mystery series, she has written sixteen novels, and is currently writing her seventeenth. Described as ‘a rare talent’ (The Daily Mail) and author of ‘one of the best titles hitting the shelves’ (The Times), Leigh has received numerous accolades from critics and reviewers. Fellow author Lee Child calls her books ‘unmissable’ and Jeffery Deaver describes her as ‘a brilliant talent’.

 

Leigh runs creative writing courses for the prestigious Writers Lab in Greece, and the Scuola Holden in Turin, as well as giving crime writing master classes at universities and literary festivals around the UK and occasionally in France. She is coming to Morecombe to share her tips on how to write successful fiction, talking about techniques to engage readers’ interest and keep them turning the pages, and will be discussing aspects of writing such as character, plot, structure, pace and language.

 

This event is suitable for anyone interested in learning about the craft of writing, from experienced published authors to complete beginners. Questions from participants are welcome.

 

Leigh has been shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association New Blood Dagger Award, long listed for the CWA Dagger in the Library, and has twice been a Finalist for the People's Book Prize. As chair of the CWA Debut Dagger judges and co-ordinator of the CWA Manuscript Assessment Service, Leigh was recently invited to join the Committee of the CWA. She is a Royal Literary Fellow.
