Crime Fiction Festivals - next year Harrogate and before that CSI Portsmouth, Crimefest, and something new for February 2012

It's not over until the fat lady sings!  Well I'm not fat, I'm not very good at singing and some might even say I'm no lady but the crime fiction festival calendar of events is not over yet. The grime may have settled on Crimfest in Bristol and the dust on the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate  but still to come for all you crime fiction fans in the UK is CSI Portsmouth - where crime fact meets crime fiction, and we have a stellar line up of top UK crime authors, to be announced soon.

CSI Portsmouth takes place on Saturday 5 November 2011, so make sure to mark that date in your diary. You can read about last year's highly successful CSI Portsmouth here or on my official web site.

And if you are keen to make sure you don't miss 2012 events then here are some more dates to mark in your diaries. I hope to be at all these events and looking forward to mingling with my fellow crime writers and lots of crime fiction fans.
