  1. Thank you for the mention! Very best wishes, Helen Grant

  2. I'm a keen reader of crime fiction (teen) and even try and write some myself for friends at school. Particularly a fan of Neil Gaiman's writing, not only his crime writing but his short stories etc. which all have that Gothic edge. I gather you focus on recent publications, but I have just finished reading 'Hide' by Lisa Gardner (pub. 2008) and was completely enthralled by her intricate plot line. It was as if I were watching a really good 'Whodunnit' on the television. It was the type of book that was so good, I had to remind myself that I did have a life before reading it. She has published many other novels since, and I'm awaiting my Birthday eagerly for some book-shaped presents to appear at the table. Although, judging by this list, I'll have a few more to get through. I'm really bad for sticking with the same author, so these lists are a really useful tool, thank you.

  3. My plan is to focus on teenage (and a bit younger) crime during National Crime Writing month which begins in early June.
