Winner Mark Billingham in session

Great session this morning with Mark Billingham and Laura Wilson. Mark is a marvellous raconteur and a good choice to start the day.

Mark has had a previous existence as an actor and comedian before embarkng on his writing career. DI Thorne is a billiant series Character and it was fascinating to hear how Mark channelled his own terrifying experience as the victim of an armed robbery. All deftly chaired by Laura.

The Historical fiction event that followed was fascinating. Our own Caro Peacock was full of interesting detail about her heroine Liberty Lane. Gyles Brandreth had them rolling in the aisles!
