Crime Cymru


I was thrilled to be in Aberystwyth on the weekend of 21-23 April 2023 for the first-ever in person Crime Cymru Festival. There were brilliant writers there and I enjoyed lots of the sessions. They were recorded and can now be viewed online via the festival site for only £2 per session. I was the close-up reader at the session at 9 am on Saturday, reading a 3 minute extract from Death At Castle Cove. The panel discussion which followed was fascinating. Barry Ryan is a television and film producer (recent credits include the Agatha Raisin series on TV). He contributed great insights about how books get chosen to be shown on screen. Bev Jones’ book Wilderness is shortly to be released as a six part series on Amazon Prime starring Jenna Coleman, and she talked about this exciting project. Cathy Ace’s books feature a psychologist, Cait Morgan, in a series of books which are to be produced for the screen by Barry Ryan.
