I've finished writing up all the panels I went to at the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival 2012. You can read these here. I've added photos to the earlier posts including the Crime Novel of the Year ceremony (and a photo of Colin Dexter).
The programming chair (for 2013) returns to Val McDermid who did the first few years. Already announced are: Kate Atkinson, Charlaine Harris, Susan Hill and Ruth Rendell interviewed by Jeanette Winterson.
Hopefully half the authors invited will be women rather than just under a third as in 2012.
The dates for 2013 are 18-21 July.
(In case you're eager to know about the quiz - I joined the Crimesquad team (Agatha Christie's Pearl Necklace team name) and we came second by one point.)
