Cumbrian newspaper The Westmorland Gazette have run a feature on the upcoming Furness LitFest, which is taking place in Dalton-on-Furness this coming weekend (November 1-3). I’m taking part on Saturday morning, on a panel with fellow crime and horror author Helen Phifer. I was very flattered to read the Gazette’s headline for the piece, by Adrian Mullen!
One of thriller writing’s elite is among the literary line up for Furness Litfest
ZOË Sharp is up there among the thriller writing elite and offers chapter and verse on her literary life in the opening event of November’s Furness Litfest
As a novelist, success first came in 2001 with KILLER INSTINCT, the first book to feature her ex-Special Forces heroine, Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox, a self-defence instructor with a slightly shady military background and a painful past. Zoë says that the character evolved after she received death threat letters in the course of her photo-journalism work.

Not long until Furness LitFest next month. (Wow, is Christmas creeping up on us, or what?) Helen Phifer and I will be taking part in Thriller Writers Talk With Margaret Martindale, starting 9:30 am on Sat, Nov 02 at the Dalton Community Centre on Nelson Street in Dalton-in-Furness. Tickets available from the website. Do come along if you can. It should be fun!
Join Zoë Sharp and Martin Edwards on an historical tour of crime fiction, its rise to popularity and the enduring interest in all things murder, kidnap and conspiracy. Our event takes place in the perfect setting for a vintage crime novel: The Royal Toby Hotel.
Our event is followed by Sophie Hannah speaking about Agatha Christie, Poirot and Me. You can buy a double-bill ticket if you’d like to come to both events, which are being held at The Royal Toby Hotel on Manchester Road, Rochdale, OL11 3HF.
You can book tickets here.
