A big thank you to all the people who came to Stoke library on Thursday for the murder mystery night.
I had a great time, and was thoroughly impressed with the cunning plot the Stoke Writers Group came up with.
I was equally impressed how many people in the audience were so quickly on the trail of the killer, discarding the various red herrings and discerning the true motive with ruthless efficiency. It's heartening to know we have plenty of fine amateur detectives out there!
Thanks also for your kind reaction to my own scribblings. I was delighted so many of you had read The Judgement Book, and The Death Pictures and Evil Valley. It's always good to know your efforts are appreciated!
The event proved so popular that the format for the evening is one I suspect we'll use again - anything to lift the gloom of these dark autumn and winter evenings - so keep writing those thrillers and mysteries...
