About this event

May is National Crime Reading month, and what better way to celebrate than hearing from not one, but two brilliant crime fiction writers at the top of their game.

Sarah Ward and Roz Watkins both set their work amongst the atmospheric scenery of the Derbyshire Peaks. Why is the area such fertile ground for books full of deadly menace? Sarah and Roz will discuss their inspirations and approaches to keeping it local.

Sarah Ward has written three highly-acclaimed DC Childs novels: In Bitter Chill, A Deadly Thaw and A Patient Fury, all set in the Derbyshire Peak District, where she lives. She was a 2015 Amazon Rising Start and A Patient Fury was an Observer Thriller of the Month. Roz Watkins is the author of the DI Meg Dalton series, which is set in the Peak District, where Roz lives with her partner and a menagerie of demanding animals. Her first novel, The Devil’s Dice, was published in March this year and was shortlisted for the Debut Dagger Award and was recently The Times crime book of the month.
