Long listed for the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award!

LONGLISTED FOR THE IAN FLEMING STEEL DAGGER AWARD!

 

category_icons03I’m so delighted – I’ve been longlisted for The Crime Writer’s Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award. I can’t quite believe BONE BY BONE is alongside Lee Child’s MAKE ME and Julia Heaberlin’s BLACK-EYED SUSANS.IMG_3403

Ian Fleming said there was one essential criterion for a good thriller – that ‘one simply has to turn the pages.’

And my day continued to get better, as I sat next to Ian Rankin for dinner at Crimefest! Ian said that he was a mid-list writer for eleven years before he broke into the best-seller list with BLACK AND BLUE. So with perseverance and luck there’s hope for us all.
