HQ Crime Fiction Showcase

I travelled to London on Monday for an evening of champagne, canapés and crime on the 17th floor of my publisher HQ’s HQ in the News UK Building.

The ‘Crime Fiction Showcase’ event brought 24 of HQ’s crime authors together with journalists and book bloggers on the occasion of HQ’s second birthday, and gave us all a chance to put faces to names and Twitter handles, which is nice even when it doesn’t happen over canapés!

Other authors attending included the brilliant Khurrum Rahman, Mick Finlay, Roz Watkins, Vicky Newham, Phoebe Morgan, Mel McGrath, Christina McDonald, Will Cain, Kerry Barnes, Ross Armstrong, Lisa Hall, Melanie Golding, Faith Martin, Alice Feeney, Amanda Jennings, Suzy K Quinn, Helen Warner, Linwood Barclay, CJ Skuse, Kia Abdullah, Louise Jensen and Louise Hare.

And yes, that’s a very excited me photo-bombing between Roz Watkins and Vicky Newham…

So proud to see my books in such illustrious company. Photo cred: @Zarinatweets / pagetostagereviews.com
