Happy accidents…


All this week I’ll be over at the International Thriller Writers ‘Roundtable’ discussion, talking about “happy accidents while doing research”. Which in my case is less about spilling hot coffee in my lap, and more about discoveries in my chosen location of Birmingham.

This includes recent visits to the city, and several new discoveries. But I’m also interested to hear if other writers like finding out about the places they use in their books, and whether readers enjoy that kind of detail in a crime book.

The chat is open to all so do come along to join in, heckle or throw fruit (just no tinned peaches thanks). All you need to do is follow the link above, scroll down past the potted author biographies, and click on “x comments” to open up the comments section. See you there!
