Murder They Wrote: Three authors, Carol Bissett, Liz Hedgecock and Mike Jackson will discuss how they murder people (in their books!) As well as reading extracts from the various murder mystery books they have written, they will also chat about different murder methods and their advantages and disadvantages, why they write murder mysteries and what inspires them. They promise to make the session entertaining rather than gruesome!
