My companion to the Kingston Killers event the other night, Maxine, has been super efficient and written it up already, over on Petrona.
The 9 attending authors were split into 3 groups: historical (Laura Wilson, Ariana Franklin, Nicola Upson), spooky (our categorisation!) (Johan Theorin, Yaba Badoe, Cathi Unsworth) and gritty (R J Ellory, Chris Carter, N J Cooper).
Each author read a short passage from one of their books and then each set was cross-examined by Chris of Crimesquad. Most memorable answer came from Laura Wilson when asked why she wrote historicals..."none of that fannying about with mobile phones"
Afterwards there was a buying and signing session and Maxine is seen here (clutching Echoes from the Dead) in discussion with Johan:
It was a great evening, well attended and I hope that Waterstone's at Kingston have future, similar events.
