'Why Crime Fiction Is Good For You'

Surely he needs no introduction!  But if you do wish to learn more about the rather successful and prolific crime writer (and part-time Cromarty resident), Ian Rankin's website gives you all the info.

Following his talk, Ian will be signing copies of his novel, 'Rather Be The Devil'.

Margaret Morton Kirk is a writer living and working in her home town of Inverness. She has written a number of short stories, one of which, ‘Still Life’, was runner-up in the ‘Bloody Scotland’ short story competition in 2015.  It was later adapted for radio and broadcast on Radio 4 as part of its ‘Scottish Shorts’ series.

‘The Seal Singers’, a semi-mythic tale set in Orkney, won third prize in the 2016 Mslexia short story competition.  And ‘Coming Home’, a chilling insight into one family’s fragmented past, was published in the Tales from Elsewhere anthology.

Her debut novel, Shadow Man is published by Orion. Set in Inverness, it’s the first in a planned series featuring ex-Met DI Lukas Mahler.
