CRIME WRITERS' & READERS' thread.....everyone welcome...
Crime fiction seems to be the genre where I feel most at home (I'm not a criminal!) and produce my best stuff, and I know there's quite a few others out there who've mentioned crime writing in other threads, so I thought it may be pertinent to have a thread dedicated to the subject.
A friend of mine, called Matt Hilton, has recently clinched a five book deal worth approximately £million with Hodder, and his first book, 'Dead Men's Dust,' is out next June. So, although some people still frown upon this subject (apparently), it's still one of the most popular genres around.
My favourite novelist at the moment is the 'pacey' Simon Kernick (this will probably change next June!).
Tell us your favourite(s) and what your personal aspirations are and feel free to clarify any problems you have while writing, as I'm sure there's enough like-minded writers on here to move each other closer to our dreams!
