In conversation with Bill Swainson.
M. W. Craven is best known for his intricately plotted, best-selling crime novels set in Cumbria, featuring instinctive detective Washington Poe and super-intelligent geeky analyst Tilly Bradshaw. This summer he launched a new series, set in the USA and with a main character, US Marshal Ben Koenig, who is medically incapable of fear.
Craven will talk about his well-established characters, and his two newest books: The Botanist, the latest book in the ‘Washington Poe’ series, and Fearless (‘A superb thriller that will have everyone gasping’ — David Baldacci). He will also discuss the craft of crime-writing, and the not-so-gentle art of breaking into the American market, the ups and downs of film and TV options and the importance of humour.
