Guest Post: An Evening With Ann Cleeves.





On September 13th, Harrogate Library hosted this event, which was organised by the town's independent bookshop, Imagined Things. Ann Cleeves was promoting her latest, and final, book in the Shetland series, Wild Fire. This detective series has formed the basis of a popular TV show. 


Ann gave us a very enjoyable and entertaining talk in which she described the various points in her life which have shaped her writing career, including her introduction to the Shetland Isles, an area with which she has obviously become very familiar and is very dear to her. She read a few paragraphs from her first book in the series, Raven Black, and then the very start of this, the eighth in the series. Ann finished by kindly answering questions from the packed audience. I can't wait to get started on this final  Shetland mystery.
