Steven will be appearing at two major crime writing festivals this summer.

The first, Crimefest in Bristol, is held annually at the Bristol Royal Marriot Hotel and has been described as one of the best crime-writing festivals in the world by the Guardian.

“It’s a great honour and a thrill for me and I hope to see some of you there,” said Steven.

Steven will be on a panel called Murder Knows No Boundaries from 10am to 11.00am on Friday May 16th.  The panel, moderated by Anne Zouroudi, will also feature other top authors including Mari Hannah, Jeffrey Siger and Thomas Mogford.

Details of the festival and ticket availability, can be found at the website.

The second event, the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, takes place in Harrogate from the 17th to the 20th of July at the Old Swan Hotel.  Steven has been asked to host a table on Saturday the 19th.

“Readers get the chance to join me in a two-course meal and talk crime writing.  There’s also a chance to win prizes by solving a mystery, hopefully with my expert (?) advice,” said Steven.

The event is ticket-only and you can buy yours at the festival’s website.
