I had the pleasure this weekend of attending a debut Author talk and book-signing event to support an author that lives locally to me. I have never been to such an event before only ever attending Hay Festival which is specifically aimed at such things, so I was impressed with how much I enjoyed this and how good the talk was. Crime author KA Richardson has spent years working in CSI as part of a large police force so her approach to the novel came across as really authentic. Her books are going to expand into a series but with the character viewpoints changing between the novels.
Her debut novel, “With Deadly intent” is told by Crime Scene Manager Cass Hunt and DCI Alex McKay. When they are called to a fatal road traffic collision in the dead of night, not all is as it seems and the last thing they expect is to end up working on a murder case.
What’s the best thing about being a writer?
K.A. Richardson: I’d have to say it’s actually writing – getting the story in your head down in a format that is readable and hopefully enjoyable to the readers – and…moreI’d have to say it’s actually writing – getting the story in your head down in a format that is readable and hopefully enjoyable to the readers – and interacting with other writers and readers too – I love meeting new people and chatting about general writerly stuff.
So, after hearing KA Richardson discuss her novel so passionately, I am delighted to have bought this novel and the review will follow shortly. For those that follow this blog, you probably realize the last thing I need is more books but who can resist a signed copy when you have met the author in person. I think I am going to have to do one of the closet conversions or something to get the best book space (for those that don’t know what I mean check out the amazingly creative bookshelf ideas here). I definitely recommend attending an author event if you ever get the chance in your area. You never know you might discover a new favourite author! KL ❤
