In association with Northumberland Library Service we are delighted to welcome Mari Hannah for this evening’s event. Mari is a multi-award-winning author whose authentic voice is no happy accident. A former probation officer, she lives in rural Northumberland with her partner, an ex-murder detective. Mari turned to script-writing when her career was cut short following an assault on duty. Her debut, The Murder Wall (adapted from a script she developed with the BBC) won her the Polari First Book Prize. Its follow-up, Settled Blood, picked up a Northern Writers' Award. Her Kate Daniels series is in development with Stephen Fry's production company, Sprout Pictures and she is currently Reader in Residence for Harrogate International Crime Writing Festival. Mari's body of work won her the CWA Dagger in the Library 2017, an incredible honour to receive so early on in her career.

Tonight Mari discusses her latest novel “The Insider” and shares some insight with us about her craft and career.

‘Nobody understands the many faces of cops better than Mari Hannah.'

Val McDermid

'Mari Hannah writes with a sharp eye and a dark heart.'
