A Life Of Crime – Val McDermid Interviewed by Nicolette Jones
Date: Saturday 6th April 2019 – 2pm – 3pm
Venue: Sheldonian Theatre, Broad St, Oxford OX1 3AZ
The Queen of Crime Val McDermid talks about her life and work as one of Britain’s leading crime writers.
McDermid has sold more than 15 million books cross the globe and is translated into over 40 languages. She is perhaps best known for her Wire in the Blood series, featuring clinical psychologist Dr Tony Hill and DCI Carol Jordan, which was adapted for television starring Robson Green. She has written three other series: private detective Kate Brannigan, journalist Lindsay Gordon and, most recently, cold case detective Karen Pirie. She has also published several award-winning standalone novels, two books of non-fiction, two short story collections and a children’s picture book, My Granny is a Pirate.
Here she talks to The Sunday Times children’s books editor Nicolette Jones.
This event is part of St Hilda’s Day at the festival, a series of talks featuring graduates of St Hilda’s College.
